Early start of the day at 6:30am after a good night sleep. Aiming to have breakfast at 7am and plan the day’s activities.
In the meantime, it remains to enjoy the view
So the plan is to make our way round the island with a few stops along the way.
The first of these stops is at ” La Montagne Magique” where for a mere 200 CFPF you are allowed to walk up to the view point. Not an easy task as it is quite steep and of course very hot. But it is really worth it. The 360º view at the top is breathtaking and highlights what Polynesia is.
It is the same steep hill to walk down and it is even warmer
We are rewarded however a tasting of local fruits and jams. Add to this a fruit juice, in my case pineapple and lemon, freshly prepared and the climb is quickly forgotten.
Time to visit a beach, we had spotted from the viewpoint and nice white sand stretch in the lagoon and this is where we are heading.
The water is warm and clear and I take my very first underwater pic.
