Wallis Island

May 31, 2018 - National Geographic Orion


Our second day of exploring Wallis and Futuna began with National Geographic Orion entering the barrier reef into the gorgeous lagoon that surrounds the main island of Wallis. For the morning we explored the land side of Wallis and the afternoon the water side. From an archaeological site, to the smiling faces, to the great corals, and the beautiful beach, Wallis was diverse and fantastic.
