The little jewel we call Managaha (on the "Map This" feature) you can see here in the lower part of the photo, right of center. You can also see the protecting reef just to the right of that. The water you see here varies from a few feet to probably about 40 or so (maybe more in the channel: I'm not sure how deep they keep it, but it is deep enough for deep-port ships). As you may have heard, Google Japan recently named Managaha (yep, this very one) as the third best beach in the world for vacationers. So, just sit back for a moment and imagine yourself decked out on that nice, white beach you see jutting out to your right from this enchanting little island.
