The Not-So-Secret Cove and The Resort on the Cliff

Imagine a place where the South Pacific Ocean violently lashes a huge rocky uplifted reef. And now imagine sitting in the serene water on the other side of the reef 10-20 meters away from the breakers. Channels carved into the coral form deeper pools in the shallow water that you can swim in, and otherwise you walk around in ankle to knee-deep water. And on the other side of this calm band of water that stretches as far as the eye can see in either direction, is a beach of soft, brilliantly-white sand. "Secret Cove" is a favourite destination for lazy weekend afternoon swims and picnics, as well as midnight bonfires, being sheltered from the wind, and completely hidden from sight from the farmer's access road up above on the cliffs.
