Pinaki Atoll

Pinaki Atoll is a small atoll 1115km east of Tahiti. Its length / width is 2km by 1.5km. On the whole atoll, only one island is completely wrapped in a ring, and has a passage on the west side, which connects the lagoon with the ocean, but the lagoon is shallow with coral deposits protruding from it. Ships and boats cannot pass there.

nice corals around

In that lagoon, people catch fish and octopuses well. Pinaki is located 14 km southeast of Nukutavake, which is the closest country. Pinaki is uninhabited, but is sometimes visited by villagers from the neighboring island of Nukutavake. There are a couple of buildings, a church, coconut plantations. The atoll is small and beautiful, and the calm of that place can be felt through the pictures. One of the best and calmest atolls in the world, according to my opinion.
