Takutea

Takutea is a small, uninhabited sandy cay that sits barely six metres above sea level, and is clearly visible from the island of Atiu.

The island has been declared a wildlife sanctuary to protect seabirds like the tavake (red-tailed tropicbird), red-footed booby, brown booby, great frigatebird, and various noddy birds. It is home to one of the biggest breeding colonies of the red-tailed tropicbird in the world.

The island is maintained by the people of Atiu, but is rarely visited due to rough waters between the two islands and the dangerous landing site on Takutea. Visitation is only possible through government approval.
