    What is the most beautiful place to stay on this island?? Did you see the varios pensions and guest houses? Where would you stay if you went back, and why?? Thank you so much for your help

    White sandy beaches, blue sea and palm trees... looks stunning... I am tempted to pack up and become a beach bum... Great page!

    This was one of our favorites too. We had our own private motu! Alas, we never made it to the main island! ;-) Just us, the sunset, champagne, and the "walking shells!" Nice write up! I'll get crackin' on my page once I get my head outta the clouds! ;-)))
