At around 18 million years old, MANGAIA is the most ancient island in the Pacific. It's not a beautiful island in the usual sense, but it is an island of great beauty. Sandy beaches are few, but the only footprints are likely to be yours, as tourism is still in its infancy. And UK visitors can expect a particularly warm welcome from residents who, although fiercely proud of their home, still call themselves British!
