Pictures of Rangiroa's unspoiled coral atoll and its lagoon, motus, palm trees, white sand beaches, and sunsets. Rangiroa is the second largest atoll in the world. With basically no elevation, the island is, like many other paradises, under siege of man-made climate change with higher ocean temperatures, raised sea levels, and intensified storms.
