Kiwayu

 

I came up with the idea of a journey to Kiwayu right after I came back from Lamu this year in March. I was amazed by this archipelago and I felt I needed to go back. I can describe Kiwayu as a place where a lovely wind still blows (it is important because the huts do not have any doors or windows and they are air-conditioned in a natural way), and you can meet thousands of red crabs on the beach.

French Polynesia, Society Islands

Raiatea

 

Somewhat smaller than Tahiti, Raiatea is the second largest of the Society Islands in French Polynesia. The proper spelling of the name, rarely used though, in the Tahitian language is Ra’iatea, meaning bright sky; Ulieta is an obsolete transcription commonly used in the 19th century. The chief town on Raiatea is Uturoa, administrative center for the Leeward Islands (French Îles Sous-le-vent). The islands of Raiatea and Tahaa are both enclosed by the same coral reef, and may once have been a single island.
