Magical Place

We are anchored off the little motu Tauna in the very east of the archipelago. It’s hard to describe how magical this place is. A painting with such a colour composition of all possible shades of turquoise, blue, and green would only be called kitschy. Indeed, what we get to see looks almost unreal. The motu is only tiny. It’s covered with palm trees which tower above pandanus and a few pine trees and it’s surrounded by a flawless-white sand beach. An equally blinding white sand bank extends the islet to the south. All that is surrounded by turquoise-shinig, crystal-clear water. The pristine corals and their inhabitants sparkle. Further away into the lagoon, the turquoise turns gradually into blue. On the outer side of the barrier reef mighty waves brake over the coral, forming towering masses of white and producing a constant roar to add acoustically to the composition. Beyond that the Pacific drops off into endless deep azure. Hard to believe that it took us so long to discover this magical spot!
