Moon Reef or Makalati is known to the "yavusa" (tribe) called Lau in the village of Silana. The village of Silana is located in a north easterly direction to, and which can be seen from the retreat. Their forefathers believed that when a person dies, his/her spirit is sent to paradise. The journey starts off with the spirit going to Udukula Point. At this point, there is a series of steps which lead to two large stones. Oral tradition has it that souls use the large stones as diving boards to jump to the Moon Reef.

As a Marine Prtoected Area, it is forbbiden to discard rubbish into the reef.

Stories relayed by their forefathers will be continued when you visit Moon reef one day. Sit back, relax and enjoy your trip to Moon Reef. Refreshment is also served on board by the crew.
