Interesting Photo of the Day: Nature’s Heart in New Caledonia

Mother Nature sends her love. Named for the village nearby, the Heart of Voh is a natural heart formation within the tangled mangroves of Grande Terre, New Caledonia. Voh is now known for its spectacular aquaculture, but it was once a French coffee plantation community:

Captain Cook discovered the island paradise in 1774, and 80 years later the French claimed it as their own. Grande Terre, or “Le Caillou” as the locals call it, is a mecca for nature lovers wanting to experience a predominantly untouched South Pacific island. Resorts and built-up tourist sites are few and far between, but travelers can enjoy exquisitely serene beaches, coral reef scuba diving, and remote wilderness.
