Strange wonderland Fulanga

Fulanga is a strange geological phenomenon. Imagine an atoll with a line of outer motu, numerous coralheads and reefs which was then lifted 20 m or so by tectonic movements. That’s what happened here.
The lagoon is now shallow and gleams in light turquoise and scattered all across are mushroom-shaped limestone islets–former coralheads that were eroded by the high tides here in Fiji. Thanks to their overhangs and spiky rocks they are completely unaccessible which makes them perfect nesting places for seabirds (we see raucous groups of bridled terns and white-tailed tropic birds) and great destinations for kayers!
We’ll post pics as soon as we have internet again…
