Maeva held up a map

Maeva held up a map that showed the UNESCO bioreserve where the manta rays were to be found, due to the high density of plankton on the atoll. On route to Hanifaru Bay we were invited to cool off over a shallow reef which I believed was a test of our snorkelling and swimming ability. We dived in and admired the striking colours of the fish and caught sight of two turtles foraging for food on the sea bed.
