Photographer's Note

A quiet section of Iztuzu Lagoon where the mini Everglades meets the sea. You can work out where the sea breezes come from by the leaning tree. There is an urban myth that parts of the movie African Queen were filmed in the swamp near here, filling in for the Sud area on the Nile. But it turns out that claim is false. Here's an aerial shot of the marshlands, lagoon and beach.

The beach is famous for turtle nesting. There have been a couple of attempts to build huge resorts on the beach, but both times they have failed & environmentalists have won.
