The Sandbar - Cocos (Keeling) Islands by 

A long sand spit formed a pathway to a tiny island located in the southern end of the Cocos lagoon. Pulu Maraya is one of those little havens with exceptional snorkelling opportunities with the right tide. Cocos (Keeling) Islands is an external territory of Australia, some 2900km north west of Perth

I’m one lucky lady who lives on a remote tropical island in the middle of the Indian Ocean. Inspired by the surrounding beauty above and below, I took up photography as a hobby several years go. This has now turned out to be an all consuming passion, driven by the desire to promote the Cocos (Keeling) Islands the only way I know, through my eyes and lens.
