Vatia and Pola Tai

The village of Vatia on the northern side of the island offers a remote beach flanked by jungle as well as views of Pola Tai, or Pola Island, renowned for its steep cliffs, seabird colonies and wild waves. The rest of the world’s air quality is measured in comparison to the air in this gorgeous spot. The waters here are where Apollo 11 splashed down, making this air, this fresh wonder, the first real air those astronauts breathed after walking on the moon.
