is an iconic atoll in French Polynesia. The beaches
are beautiful, but not as good like Bora Bora. The problem is that the seabed is not very comfortable due to the broken corals. Rangiroa is good in its low key and laid back feeling - far from the outside world. You'll have a full freedom in all respects. As the atoll is very big, there are a lot of islets without a single person, thus giving great opportunities to find your personal paradise. Shore and seabed: sand, stones. 
The only upscale resort in Rangiroa is Kia Ora
(from US$500), which also has a sister property on a tiny uninhabited islet
All other accommodation options are small family guesthouses near the airport with rooms' rates starting from US$100 per night. It is worth to mention the Punua et Moana
hotel, located on a separate large motu. Find hotels in Rangiroa
How to get there 
Fly to Tahiti International Airport (PPT)
, then fly to Rangiroa airport (RGI)
. Next hire a taxi or take a boat, depending on where you need.
Keep in mind, that the atoll is very large, so boat trip to a remote motu usually takes about one hour per way. And the boat will run over the lagoon with a fairly strong waves - just like in the open ocean. Therefore, you should be ready for the seasick. Find flights to Rangiroa
