A curious sensation overcomes you once you reach Fakarava. Unlike Rangiroa, the atoll of Fakarava is a lot less populated and is certainly a lot less touristy. The atoll conditions are a lot less harsh, there is much more vegetation and the sea conditions on the atoll are calmer. Life just comes to a standstill. Although you get a general good feeling of the place when you get there be prepared to rough it out a little in Faka.
