This natural bridge or arch is formed in the uplifted limestone of the 'Eua oceanic coast. But, it's legendary origin, is due to the volatile Polynesian folk hero, Maui, who threw his spear across the island of 'Eua and the spear lodged here!
Surrounded by natural coastal woodland that is home to the koki or red 'Eua parrot (I sighted three), it is a beautiful area with the roar of the Pacific swell crashing into the cliffs and sending walls of water 10-20M up the cliffs, and by contrast as one retreats into the woods, the cicadas, insects and birds create orchestral concertos.
The majesty of this coastline is truly awesome, especially when the swell is big, as it was that day.
Thanks for the visit to 'Eua with me, dear Eva.
You had been on fantastic places, you prepared very beautiful pictures.
My best regards from Hungary, Elemér
