After cruising all night, National Geographic Orion arrived at a French overseas collectivity. This territory is made up of three main volcanic tropical islands, Wallis, Futuna, and Alofi Islands. We anchored next to Wallis, also known as Uvea.

A small islet, Faioa, called our attention. The white sands and clear waters invited us to bring ashore the beach toys. The kayaks, standup paddleboards, and snorkeling platform were deployed. Once settled, our guests disembarked to enjoy this paradise.

After enjoying water activities, we returned on board. We could have stayed here for longer, but our journey must continue. We were granted a lovely sunset as we cruised away from Wallis.
