Located at a short distance from Tamolaka Airport, Weekuri Lake is the one of the easiest-to-visit places. It’s a beautiful saltwater lagoon receiving water from the adjacent sea and the sunshine creates amazing emerald-like sparkles on it. The lake water is shallow, so you can’t swim here. But you can paddle around the lake but you have to be careful about the coral. It would be best to visit the lake at the time of sunset when you can enjoy the sun’s glow on the lake water.
