New photo album: Motu Kouaku

Motu Kouaku, Iles Gambier

In early (southern-hemisphere) autumn we spent a few days all on our own at this Motu in the South-East. It got quite bouncy because high swell made it in and a front passed over us, but we faced it out and were rewarded with another glittering, magical day. Even though Kouaku is only a few miles S of Tauna, it looks quite different. Only hardy shrubs, pandanus and a handful of coconut palms grow here. It is more than 1km long and has beaches of fine white sand. Like Tauna it is also uninhabited and a bird-nesting refuge.
