Minerva Reefs – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 Minerva Reefs  Comments Off on Minerva Reefs – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jun 172016
 

The Minerva Reefs (Tongan: Ongo Teleki), briefly de facto independent in 1972 as the Republic of Minerva, are a group of two submerged atolls located in the Pacific Ocean south of Fiji and Tonga. The reefs were named after the whaleship Minerva, wrecked on what became known as South Minerva after setting out from Sydney in 1829. Many other ships would follow, for example the Strathcona, which was sailing north soon after completion in Auckland in 1914. In both cases most of the crew saved themselves in whaleboats or rafts and reached the Lau Islands in Fiji. Of some other ships, however, no survivors are known.

Both North and South Minerva Reefs are used as anchorages by yachts traveling between New Zealand and Tonga or Fiji. While waiting for favourable weather for the approximately 800-mile (1,300km) passage to New Zealand, excellent scuba diving, snorkelling, fishing and clamming can be enjoyed. North Minerva (Tongan: Teleki Tokelau) offers the more protected anchorage, with a single, easily negotiated, west-facing pass that offers access to the large, calm lagoon with extensive sandy areas. South Minerva (Tongan: Teleki Tonga) is in shape similar to an infinity symbol, with its eastern lobe partially open to the ocean on the northern side. Due to the lower reef and large entrance, the anchorage at South Minerva can be rough at high tide if a swell is running. The lagoon also contains numerous coral heads that must be avoided. While presenting an attractive area to wait out harsh weather occurring farther south, the Minerva reefs are not a good place to be when the weather is bad locally. This does not occur often, but it is important to maintain awareness of the situation and put to sea if necessary.

Scuba diving the outside wall drop-offs at the Minerva Reefs is spectacular due to the superb water clarity and extensive coral, fish and other marine life. There are few suspended particles and the visibility is normally in excess of 100 feet (30m) since there is no dry land at high tide. Of particular note are the numerous fan coral formations near the pass at North Minerva and the shark bowl area located by the narrow dinghy pass on the western lobe of South Minerva. The inside of the lagoon at South Minerva is also home to numerous giant clams. Divers at Minerva must be entirely self-sufficient, with their own compressor, and should also be aware that the nearest assistance is a multiple-day boat ride away in Tonga. Due to the vertical drop off and water clarity, divers must watch their depth carefully.

It is not known when the reefs were first discovered but had been marked on charts as “Nicholson’s Shoal” since the late 1820s. Capt H. M. Denham of the HMS Herald surveyed the reefs in 1854 and renamed them after the Australian whaler Minerva which collided with South Minerva Reef on 9 September 1829.[1]

The Republic of Minerva was a micronation consisting of the Minerva Reefs. It was one of the few modern attempts at creating a sovereign micronation on the reclaimed land of an artificial island in 1972. The architect was Las Vegas real estate millionaire and political activist Michael Oliver, who went on to other similar attempts in the following decade. Lithuanian-born Oliver formed a syndicate, the Ocean Life Research Foundation, which allegedly had some $100,000,000 for the project and had offices in New York and London. They anticipated a libertarian society with “no taxation, welfare, subsidies, or any form of economic interventionism.” In addition to tourism and fishing, the economy of the new nation would include light industry and other commerce. According to Glen Raphael, “The chief reason that the Minerva project failed was that the libertarians who were involved did not want to fight for their territory.”[2] According to Reason, Minerva has been “more or less reclaimed by the sea”.[3]

In 1971, barges loaded with sand arrived from Australia, bringing the reef level above the water and allowing construction of a small tower and flag. The Republic of Minerva issued a declaration of independence on 19 January 1972, in letters to neighboring countries and even created their own currency. In February 1972, Morris C. Davis was elected as Provisional President of the Republic of Minerva.

The declaration of independence, however, was greeted with great suspicion by other countries in the area. A conference of the neighboring states (Australia, New Zealand, Tonga, Fiji, Nauru, Samoa, and territory of Cook Islands) met on 24 February 1972 at which Tonga made a claim over the Minerva Reefs and the rest of the states recognized its claim.

On 15 June 1972, the following proclamation was published in a Tongan government gazette:

PROCLAMATION

A Tongan expedition was sent to enforce the claim the following day. It reached North Minerva on 18 June 1972. The Flag of the Tonga was raised on 19 June 1972 on North Minerva and on South Minerva on 21 June 1972.[4]

Tongas claim was recognized by the South Pacific Forum in September 1972. Meanwhile, Provisional President Davis was fired by founder Michael Oliver and the project collapsed in confusion. Nevertheless, Minerva was referred to in O. T. Nelson’s post-apocalyptic children’s novel The Girl Who Owned a City, published in 1975, as an example of an invented utopia that the book’s protagonists could try to emulate.

In 1982, a group of Americans led again by Morris C. Bud Davis tried to occupy the reefs, but were forced off by Tongan troops after three weeks. In recent years several groups have allegedly sought to re-establish Minerva. No known claimant group since 1982 has made any attempt to take possession of the Minerva Reefs.

In 2005, Fiji made it clear that they did not recognize any maritime water claims by Tonga to the Minerva Reefs under the UNCLOS agreements. In November 2005, Fiji lodged a complaint with the International Seabed Authority concerning Tonga’s maritime waters claims surrounding Minerva. Tonga lodged a counter claim, and the Principality of Minerva micronation claimed to have lodged a counter claim. In 2010 the Fijian Navy destroyed navigation lights at the entrance to the lagoon. In late May 2011, they again destroyed navigational equipment installed by Tongans. In early June 2011, two Royal Tongan Navy ships were sent to the reef to replace the equipment, and to reassert Tonga’s claim to the territory. Fijian Navy ships in the vicinity reportedly withdrew as the Tongans approached.[5][6]

In an effort to settle the dispute, the government of Tonga revealed a proposal in early July 2014 to give the Minerva Reefs to Fiji in exchange for the Lau Group of islands.[7] In a statement to the Tonga Daily News, Lands Minister Lord Maafu Tukuiaulahi announced that he would make the proposal to Fiji’s Minister for Foreign Affairs, Ratu Inoke Kubuabola. Some Tongans have Lauan ancestors and many Lauans have Tongan ancestors; Tonga’s Lands Minister is named after Enele Ma’afu, the Tongan Prince who originally claimed parts of Lau for Tonga.[8]

Area: North Reef diameter about 5.6 kilometres (3.5mi), South Reef diameter of about 4.8 kilometres (3.0mi). Terrain: two (atolls) on dormant volcanic seamounts.

Both Minerva Reefs are about 435 kilometres (270mi) southwest of the Tongatapu Group. The atolls are on a common submarine platform from 549 to 1,097 metres (1,801 to 3,599ft) below the surface of the sea. North Minerva is circular in shape and has a diameter of about 5.6 kilometres (3.5mi). There is a small sand bar around the atoll, awash at high tide, with a small entrance into the flat lagoon with a somewhat deep harbor. South Minerva is parted into The East Reef and the West Reef, both circular with a diameter of about 4.8 kilometres (3.0mi). Around both reefs are two small sandy cays, vegetated by low scrub and some trees[dubious discuss]. Several iron towers and platforms are reported to have stood on the atolls, along with an unused light tower on South Minerva, erected by the Americans during World War II.[citation needed]. Geologically, Minervan Reef is of a limestone base formed from uplifted coral formations elevated by now-dormant volcanic activity.

The climate is basically subtropical with a distinct warm period (DecemberApril), during which the temperatures rise above 32C (90F), and a cooler period (MayNovember), with temperatures rarely rising above 27C (80F). The temperature increases from 23C to 27C (74F to 80F), and the annual rainfall is from 170 to 297 centimeters (67-117 in.) as one moves from Cardea in the south to the more northerly islands closer to the Equator. The mean daily humidity is 80percent.

The Tuaikaepau (‘Slow But Sure’), a Tongan vessel on its way to New Zealand, became famous when it struck the reefs on 7 July 1962. This 15-metre (49ft) wooden vessel was built in 1902 at the same yard as the Strathcona. The crew and passengers survived by living in the remains of a Japanese freighter. There they remained for three months in miserable circumstances and several of them died. Finally Captain Tvita Fifita decided to get help. Without tools, he built a small boat from the wood left over from his ship. With this raft, named Malolelei (‘Good Day’), he and a few of the stronger crew members sailed to Fiji in one week.

Ascension

Ascension Island is an island in the Atlantic Ocean, just south of the equator, 700 miles northwest of Saint Helena, the United Kingdom territory by which it is administered.

The main settlement and “capital” is Georgetown where the tourist information office is in the Obsidian Hotel (see “Sleep” section).

This barren and uninhabited island was discovered and named by the Portuguese in 1501. The British garrisoned the island in 1815 to prevent a rescue of Napoleon from Saint Helena and it served as a provisioning station for the Royal Navy’s West Africa Squadron on anti-slavery patrol. The island remained under Admiralty control until 1922, when it became a dependency of Saint Helena. During World War II, the UK permitted the US to construct Wideawake airfield on Ascension in support of trans-Atlantic flights to Africa and anti-submarine operations in the South Atlantic. In the 1960s the island became an important space tracking station for the US. In 1982, Ascension was an essential staging area for British forces during the Falklands War, and it remains a critical refuelling point in the air-bridge from the UK to the South Atlantic.

The climate on Ascension Island is subtropical. It is arid and lacking in vegetation until the elevation increases where lush forest and fertile soil exists.

The tourist information office is in the Obsidian Hotel (see Sleep).

All visitors must apply for an entry permit in advance (minimum 14 days). An Entry Permit issued by the Administrator’s office allows a stay of up to 3 months. Passports must be valid for a minimum period of 6 months from the date of entry into Ascension, and visitors must also have full medical insurance which will cover the expense of medical evacuation, if needed.

There is no public transport (including taxis) on Ascension. Obsidian offers car rentals from 25/day.

Sport fishing is the main attraction for visitors to Ascension Island. There are also some beaches and ocean swimming in certain coves, such as Comfortless Cove and English Bay. Long Beach, as inviting as it looks, has a very hazardous undertow and is not suitable for sea bathing. However, it is a sheer delight for wildlife fans as this is where sea turtles go to nest. There are a few paths (such as Rupert’s Path) suitable for hiking into the more lush highlands, as well as mountainside lava tubes to explore. The British pastime of letterboxing – hiking to a destination that contains a “letterbox” containing a log book and a rubber stamp pad – is possible here.

Ascension Island features what was at one time reputed to be the world’s worst golf course. Located between the settlements of Two Boats village and Georgetown, the course has 18 holes and the greens are in fact ‘browns’, a reference to the sand and oil mix used to make them. The rest of the course is made up of volcanic ash and rock, which makes for some interesting rounds.

There is some terrific Scuba Diving in the waters surrounding Ascension Island. At present, however, there are only local enthusiasts and no recognized Diving Operation. Some of locals are often willing to take experienced visitors with them

There are Fumaroles and Lava Tunnels to explore (at Command Hill, near the Catholic Grotto)

The grocery store and almost every other business on the island have really odd hours of operation.(the gas station on Tuesdays is open 2-3 in the afternoon) so make sure you write up the times on the first day. The Obsidian Hotel has a nice gift shop with some good books and beach vacation-style t-shirts.

Because everything is imported prices for food are very high on the island. If you get the chance to go out fishing with the locals, you may walk away with a bag of tuna. Sometimes the community hosts a fish fry that is open to everyone.

There are very few places to eat, with odd opening hours

Visitors are accommodated by the Obsidian Group Accommodation and Tourist Services, +247 6246, which maintains a hotel (the Obsidian), two hostels, and two cottages (7 night minimum). Hotel rates range from 45 for a single to 79 for a VIP double. Hostel and cottage rates range from 25-50 per night.

Saint Helena is obviously the only reasonable destination you can visit from Ascension Island. See Get in/By sea

There is limited mobile service on the island, but service may be spotty at best. [1] (Numbers starting with 0 or 5 have been reserved for future services).

The country code for Ascension is 247 and the population is too small to need area or trunk STD codes. The International Prefix is 00. Subscriber numbers are typically 4 digits long and start with a 2 for the US Base, 3 for Travellers Hill or Airhead, 4 for Two Boats and a 6 or 7 for Georgetown.

There is a Wi-Fi hotspot in Obsidian Hotel’s lobby and patio for 10/day. The Post Office in Georgetown offers a vast array of Philatelic items for sale from the three islands of St Helena, Ascension Island and Tristan da Cunha. Airmail is possible, thanks to the airfield.WikiPedia:Ascension Island

Minerva sailing directions South Pacific voyagers, particularly those bound from Tonga or Fiji for largely cyclone-free New Zealand, should keep North and South Minerva Reef in mind for a possible storm refuge, rest stop, adventure destination, or at the very least as a potential hazard to navigation. These two atolls also represent an opportunity to see tropical Indo-Pacific sea life in a nearly undisturbed condition. Weather windows The best times to visit the Minervas are either northbound during the late Southern Hemisphere fall near the end of May/ early June or southbound during the late spring in October. Arriving too early (northbound) or too late (southbound) invites exposure to severe weather conditions. Depart New Zealand for the voyage north right behind an outgoing low, not in the middle of a high, and embark from the Minervas southward just as the leading edge of a preferably mild high reaches the area.

Information sources British Admiralty Chart 985, Mi nerva Reefs.: accurately depicts both atolls and includes a close-up of the pass into South Minerva useful for orientation. Approximate CPSentrance coordinates, for use in good light in conjunction with the chart and a lookout only, are 230 37.36 S, 178056.11 W (North Minerva) and 23 56.55 S, 179007.60 W (South Minerva). Sailing Directions Planning Guide for the South Pacific Ocean (Publication 122) also contains useful data for a visit to the Minervas. General layout North Minerva Reef is nearly circular, with an approximate diameter of 3.5 nm. Using a proper lookout, one can move around inside the atoll in order to anchor in the greatest protection for the prevailing wind. South Minerva Reef consists of two roughly circular rings of reef joined in the middle, like a number 8 tilted slightly in a northeast-southwest orientation. Only the two-milediameter eastern lagoon is accessible to larger vessels, and anchoring in Herald Bight, outside the pass, is tenable for wind directions lacking a northerly component. Like North Minerva, movement throughout this eastern lagoon for optimal anchoring is possible with a vigilant lookout. We noted a narrow pass on the northern rim of the western lagoon not shown on the chart, potentially navigable for centerboarders and dinghies. Good holding ground is prevalent inside both Minervas, and both feature slightly

bumpy conditions at higher tides in normal weather conditions. Gear A fully stocked medical kit, manuals, and training; good longdistance communication capability, such as single-sideband or ham radio or an Inmarsat transceiver; and survival fishing and watermaking equipment are all critical for a trip to the Minervas. Fishing and diving gear will greatly enhance your pleasure and dinner menu. Specifically, bring medium to heavy trolling gear for offshore fishing, 10- and 20-poundclass spinning rods for lagoon fishing, wetsuits for diving and snorkeling in the cool water, thick dive boots or other protective footwear for reef walking, and a Hawaiian sling and lobster snare. Jurisdiction The Minerva Reefs were ceded to Tonga in 1972 and ratified by the South Pacific Forum the same year. In 2010 Fiji disputed the Tongan ownership and placed gunboats at North Minerva to try and force their claim. The claim is currently under dispute.

Obviously,you will have either cleared customs out of Tonga or not yet checked in when you visit. The Minervas, however, have been long considered a stopover between countries, certainly in severe weather or for vessel repairs. Nevertheless, go easy on the seafood harvest, never taking more than you can consume in a short time, and do not disturb giant clams, sea turtles, or other threatened creatures. A visit from a Tongan patrol boat should not, under these conditions, be cause for concern.

A view from Miwaukee’s South Shore Park. Image by Carrie Trousil

Updated November 25, 2014.

Milwaukee is located on the west side of Lake Michigan, and where water meets land one will often find a beach. Warm weather brings the people of Brew City flocking to the lakefront hubs of Bradford and McKinley beach, but there are other great beaches dotting our shoreline to the north and south as well. But be warned! Taking a dip in Lake Michigan is nothing like sliding into the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, or diving into a heated pool. Be prepared for a “refreshing” experience — especially if you decide to take the Polar Bear Plunge in the middle of winter.

It’s always a good idea to check the water quality at any beach before taking a dip. Check out the WDNR’S Beach Advisories for Great Lakes Beaches website for up-to-date beach water quality monitoring data.

Atwater Beach Where: East Capitol and North Lake Drive, Shorewood Atwater Beach is a north shore beach located in Shorewood that can offer a relatively uncrowded visit.

Atwater recently underwent a concentrated clean-up effort.

Bender Park Where: 4503 E. Ryan Rd., Oak Creek Bender Park is a far southside lakefront gem featuring a safe harbor, boat launch and beach.

Big Bay Park Where: 5000 N. Lake Dr., Whitefish Bay Another nice beach tucked away in Whitefish Bay, Big Bay Park is not recommended for swimming, but is great for soaking in some sun on a hot day.

Bradford Beach Where: 2400 N. Lincoln Memorial Dr., Milwaukee When it’s hot in Milwaukee, the masses flock to Bradford Beach. After undergoing a massive clean-up and concerted efforts by local non-profits, businesses and the County Parks to bring entertainment to this lakeside gem, Bradford Beach is experiencing a renaissance.

Doctors Park / Tietjen Beach Where: 1870 E. Fox Ln., Fox Point Nearly 50 acres set on the bluffs north of Milwaukee, Doctors Park is a great place to work off some calories on the hills before you head down to the beach.

Grant Park Beach Where: 100 S. Hawthorne Ave., South Milwaukee Grant Park Beach is located in Grant Park (surprise!) in South Milwaukee. Hike the Seven Bridges Trail of Grant Park then hit the cold water of Lake Michigan.

Klode Park Where: 5900 N. Lake Dr., Whitefish Bay Located north of downtown Milwaukee in Whitefish Bay, Klode Park offer an uncrowded beach on which to lay a towel in hot weather.

McKinley Beach Where: 1750 N. Lincoln Memorial Dr., Milwaukee You’ll find McKinley Beach south of Bradford Beach on the lakefront. Located on the same stretch of Lincoln Memorial Drive, both are popular warm-weather hang-out spots.

South Shore / Bay View Park Beach Where: 2900 S. Superior St., Milwaukee Located in Bay View, south of downtown, South Shore park is a gem of a park with a sandy beach offering beautiful views of South Shore Yacht Club.

Just north of Miami lies one of the few county-run and government-sanctioned clothing-optional beaches in the United States. For years Haulover Beach has been a haven for naturists from South Florida as well as snowbirds from Canada and Europe. Thanks to the efforts of the South Florida Free Beach Association, this beach has certified lifeguards and organized group activities, such as swimming and volleyball.

Named for a hulking, wrecked vessel that once sat on the sand, Wreck Beach was Canada’s first government-sanctioned, clothing-optional beach. The 3-mile-long beach is also a wildlife and nesting area for bald eagles. Still, some sections of the beach assume carnival-like atmosphere thanks to its proximity to the University of British Columbia and its popularity with students. One stretch of sand known as Vendors’ Row is a 1-stop shop for souvenirs, refreshments and ever-important sunscreen.

Updated November 04, 2015.

Texas is known for a lot of things. However, many people overlooked the excellent beaches that are located along the Texas coast. With over 600 miles of shoreline, there is no shortage of sand for beachgoers. Here is a list of some of the top spots to spend day at the beach in Texas.

Corpus Christi/Padre Island National Seashore The mainland portion of Corpus Christi is metropolitan. However, cross the causeway to Padre Island and the urban feel begins to fade.

As you head south on Park Road 22 down Padre Island National Seashore, the modern world disappears.

Galveston Island Galveston Island offers many beach-going options. Inside the city of Galveston, the seawall and adjacent sand strip is popular among visitors, as are Stewart Beach and East Beach. Further down the island, Galveston State Park and West Beach are favorite sandy hangouts.

After a day of surf, sand and sun, head to the Strand to shop or visit one of Galvestons many excellent eateries.

Mustang Island/Port Aransas This quaint, central coast beach is located at the northern-most end of Padre Island. The ferry ride across to Port Aransas is a great way to leave the real world behind and begin your vacation. Things only get better as you visit Port As many shops and restaurants or stake out a secluded stretch of sand on Mustang Island.

Sea Rim State Park A mix of marsh and beach, Sea Rim State Park isnt a typical beach destination. However, this state park, which is located just south of Beaumont/Port Arthur is a nature-lovers delight. Bird-watchers and beach-goers often co-exist on this stretch of sand, which is the northern-most beach in Texas.

South Padre Island The most pristine beach in Texas is also the most difficult to get to. Located scant miles above the Mexican border, the South Padre surf is often a Caribbean-like clear/green as it laps against the grainy white sand. Across the Brazos Santiago Pass is isolated Boca Chica Beach.

During your off-beach hours, try SPIs sizzling nightlife, excellent restaurants and variety of curio shops. Other options include heading across the bridge to historic Port Isabel or across the border to Matamoros, Mexico.

Keep in mind, these are but a few of the beaches available in Texas. They are listed above in alphabetical order, not by any sort of rating, since they each have such diverse characteristics. But rest assured, whatever type of beach you have in mind can be found in Texas. And, again, Texas beaches are open year around, meaning there is no end to beachy fun for dedicated beachgoers.

Tropical Islands – Best Tropical Islands – List of …

Oct 182015
 

Tropical islands are a dream among travelers every winter, as fires are lit and the snow falls. A getaway to the beach has long been a survival tactic for those who endure long winters. The best tropical islands offer not only an escape from the cold, but also great value. Whether you decide to lounge on the beach in the Caribbean, take advantage of an all inclusive package in Hawaii, or splurge on a trip to the South Pacific, spending time on the beach will leave you rejuvenated to face the winter again. The first place to begin your research is with a list of tropical islands.

Tropical islands are known for their sugary white beaches, warm surf, and relaxed atmosphere. These islands extend from the Caribbean to the Atlantic to the Pacific and Indian Oceans. Some travelers dont expect a list of tropical islands to be lengthy, but in reality, you will have a great variety to choose from. You will find turquoise waters from the islands of Hawaii to Seychelles in the Indian Ocean to Fiji in the South Pacific. Other factors can help you narrow down your choices to find the best tropical islands for your desires.

In the Caribbean, some of the most popular tropical islands among vacationers are the Bahamas and Jamaica. These classic vacation destinations are known for their great beaches and resorts, as well as the abundance of all inclusive vacation packages that can be tailored to fit luxury vacations and budget travel, depending on where you choose to stay. Paradise Island and Harbour Island, both in the Bahamas, are known for their high-quality beaches and hotels, while Montego Bay, Ocho Rios, and Negril Jamaica have been consistently popular for the same reasons. Whether youre planning a honeymoon, a family adventure, or are trying to stick to a budget, all inclusive packages could help your tropical dream come true.

Hawaii is another classic island destination. The islands have been drawing thousands of visitors annually, whether they come to hike in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park on the Big Island or appreciate the romantic atmosphere and scenery on the island of Maui. Like many island destinations, Hawaii has accommodations options for an array of budgets, and for both families and couples, so its worth doing your research to find out what might be the perfect fit for you.

Some travelers think that the best tropical islands are the farthest away. If youre planning the exotic trip of a lifetime, extend your search beyond the Caribbean. The South Pacific is home to Fiji, Tahiti, Samoa, and more islands that deliver on culture, cuisine, and a serene environment. In Tahiti, for instance, one of the most popular ways to relax on a trip to Bora Bora or Moorea is to stay in one of the overwater bungalows that some resorts offer for rent. These are an amazing option if you want to have a truly unforgettable trip.

To take the path less traveled, look into the resorts on Seychelles in the Indian Ocean. The utter seclusion of beaches such as Anse Lazio and Beau Vallon is what keeps travelers coming back year after year, if luxury travel is in the budget. The villas and resorts here are second to none, so if you can spare the cash for a 5,000-square-foot villa, a trip to Seychelles might be perfect for you.

A list of tropical islands is a good place to start, but savvy travelers know that flexibility is key. Whether you are planning a trip far in advance or are looking for a last minute deal, sometimes price is the best way to determine where youre traveling to. People who follow great deals often discover new locations, resorts, and activities that they wouldnt have considered otherwise. Another great way to experience tropical islands is with a cruise. By choosing a cruise you will have the opportunity to see many tropical islands all during one trip. No matter what your budget is, there is a way to be lounging on a tropical beach this winter.

NATO Chief: Too Early to Say If Georgia Joins NATO

 NATO  Comments Off on NATO Chief: Too Early to Say If Georgia Joins NATO
Aug 272015
 

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said on a visit Thursday to Georgia that it is too early to tell whether the former Soviet republic will be invited to take the final step toward NATO membership.

NATO members voted in 2008 to accept Georgia as a member, but since then the South Caucasus nation has denied been entry into the Membership Action Plan, the last condition for membership.

NATO says Georgia must strengthen its institutions, step up justice reforms and fully respect the rule of law before it is accepted into the action plan. Tbilisi, however, claims that NATO is dragging its heels because of the frozen conflict in the breakaway republic of South Ossetia.

Speaking at the opening of a joint NATO-Georgia training center, Stoltenberg said Georgia already has “the necessary tools to continue to move toward membership.”

Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili said the training facility would “in no way be directed against any of the neighboring countries,” an apparent attempt to assuage Russia’s fears about a NATO presence close to its border. Russia and Georgia fought a five-day war over South Ossetia in 2008.

Moscow reacted angrily to the ceremony in Georgia, saying that the NATO presence would tip the balance in the region.

“We consider this move as a continuation of the provocative policy of the alliance aimed at expanding its geopolitical influence,” Russian Foreign Minister spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told reporters in Moscow. “Placing this NATO military facility in Georgia will become a substantial destabilizing factor for security in the region.”

Nataliya Vasilyeva contributed to this report from Moscow.

Plakias Beach, Crete, Greece

On the south coast of Crete, between mountains and the Libyan Sea, lies Plakias, a tiny fishing village whose population swells during the summer months. Popular with backpackers, many of whom come here to stay in the southernmost youth hostel in Europe, Plakias is also a favorite with nudists, who can swim and sunbathe in the buff along the 0.8-mile Plakias Beach. Beyond the nudist strand, Plakias offers several beach options (Ammoudi, Damnoni and Souda), mountain hikes and casual tavernas. Nearby, Mona Preveli, one of the most famous monasteries in Crete, is a worthwhile day trip. 960 1280
