Secret Fiji

Imagine an island where time stands still, 15 miles of ocean stands between you and your closest neighbor and in every direction that you look, it is impossibly beautiful.

Nanuku is an island like no other. The lagoon is the color of an illuminant photoshop turquoise-blue and it laps upon the whitest of white sand with postcard perfection. It is 10 acres. About 400 coconut trees burst from its jungle floor and they create habitat for the hundreds of sea birds. On the cusp of this jungle is a nesting ground for Hawkesbill and Leatherback turtles. Giant clams reside within the lagoon, tuna patrol the reef and the high chief of the territory (or one of his sons) will guide you through the wonders of this secret island. Staying on Nanuku is one of the nicest things you could possibly do in your life. Available via Maqai Beach...
