  • Apart from the long boat trip there was a extra day. A hat and a small bag crafted hand in live with coconut leaves. A great meal, impressive reefs and a splendid blue gradient.

  • Beautiful day trip to 7500xpf to the Islands to the reefs, in small groups of 8 to 12 people. Leon and his young team are friendly even if their sense of humor is pretty special. Excellent BBQ and coco bread, drinks of all kinds. In short a beautiful day in a landscape of end of the world and very different from the rest of the atoll. Very nice shots guaranteed. Warning SPOILER: the day includes the pick-up to the pension, commute 1 hour by boat, snorkelling on small drifting, ride and swim to the reefs, bbq, braiding courses (a bit too long for men because only women participate but very fun to do), and dishes with sharks ^^. Back 1 hour by boat + snorkelling at the aquarium and visit of the dolphins in the past.
