Summary

Description
English: The lower corner of the scene shows part of the northwestern coast of the largest island in the archipelago, Vanatinai. Most of the island is densely covered in lowland rainforest, but clearing for agricultural land is widespread around the perimeter, especially in the northwest. The shallow waters covering an extensive network of reefs are electric blue. A sinuous channel of deep, clear water (image center) connects a partially enclosed lagoon north of Vanatinai with the bay south of Yeina Island.
