1. Waiting for conditions to be just right (enough water in the pass, not too much wind!) we sailed through this pass and into the lagoon.
2. The island is a ring of coral surrounding a lagoon the size of Tahiti, making it the 2nd largest lagoon in the world.
3. It’s a coral atoll so, naturally there is a lot of crushed coral – 4. wear your water shoes – that coral is sharp.
5. A view of the surf on the shoreside exposed to the sea.
