French Polynesia's remote Tuamotu Islands number 78 in total, making them the largest of the Tahiti-Polynesian archipelagoes.

Known as the Tuamotu chain, these tropical and sparsely inhabited islands are in fact atolls- their sum total comprising the world's largest chain of atolls. Covering huge distances of the South Pacific sea, the total population of the 41 inhabited islands is only a mere 12,500 persons or so.

The Islands are not a common destination for travelers due to their remoteness and lack of a developed tourism industry. Dive with Blue Nui...
