This shallow, coral reef lined lagoon is protected by four islands from the damaging forces of the sea and by it’s remoteness from human damage which is why it remains one of the last enclaves of the giant tortoise. The reefs here are in better condition than most and scientists love to use it as a properly function example. The atoll itself is formed of reef skeleton and is home to unusual endemic flora and fauna, which has also factored in it’s scientific importance. This is a difficult spot to visit, due to it’s protected nature, but if you can get into it’s waters you can expect to see rays as well as turtles.
