Anaa is incredibly diverse, and here the coral dominates the landscape. The outrcops are fossilized coral or limestone.


When the outcrops eventually erode away, the remains will flatten to a beach seen here. This in turn is battered by endless waves grinding coral pebbels over the surface until it’s as smooth as seen here.

I was surprised to find close to no human waste on the beach – only a small fragment of a blue nylon rope. I doubt the Anaa people go garbage hunting, so perhaps Anaa is somewhat outside the currents that transport human waste.
