Tikei Island FP
Wednesday, December 27, 2006
Tikei Island (14˚58'S., 144˚33'W.) is a small island about 60 miles NE of Aratika. The only landing place is at a small village on the W extremity of the island, and it is difficult.
Tikei Island is a poorly researched island. It is not a typical Tuamotu atoll, but an island. It is a low island that most likely was an atoll many millions of years ago. The lagoon is gone and the island is covered with heavy vegetation.
