We have been on Matukad Island three times during our visit and on my last visit I was asked by someone if I don't want to climb up the steep rocks to the lagoon...I did it...the view from above is fantastic but you have to be very careful climbing up.The rocks are very sharp!

I climbed on the sharp rock just to get to this place. It was one of my best travels being able to climb some rocks, be on top and get a beautiful view of the island. Incredibly beautiful!
