Explore lush, dense rainforests home to vibrant birdlife and stunning limestone caves. Surrounded by dramatic coastal coral formations called makatea, secret coves with stunning white sand are hidden all over the island, waiting to be discovered. Secluded and private, explorers can be assured of a little paradise beach all to themselves, just like Captain Cook encountered here in 1777. Be sure to check out the local Tumunu bush beer drinking houses. The warm locals love to share a homebrew over music and singing into the night.
