Funafuti, Tuvalu


Even the saltiest of divers is intrigued by Funafuti’s outline on Google Maps. A series of nine atolls and thirty three islets, its land is comprised of large collections of reef that rise from the South Pacific and encircle to create its signature, 106 square-mile Te Namo Lagoon.

The largest island, Fongafale, is where you will fly into and spend most of your time. Its slim and sweeping mass varies in width between a quarter-mile to a mere 65 feet, making it ideally suited for exploration by motorcycle . To experience the lands where roads end, a boat is your only option, what with numerous yacht and catamarans available to charter.
