Tamita Bay on the SpotOn3D virtual world is located in central Irukandji, occupying the same grid square that it did in Second Life two years earlier.

My time on the SpotOn3D grid was short so perhaps few apart from the estate team remember many of the islands there, however a lot of content in use today, as well as layout concepts, began there life there.

Tamita Bay was pivotal to that.

Significantly, the Tamita Surf Club building design began life on Tamita Bay. Essentially a cut down version of the massive ten storey palace on neighbouring Tamita Island, the interior was then hollowed out to form a staircase, pool, and rooftop club area.

Outside, the building was slightly raised above the surrounding landscape, with lots of space around it.

This isolation made it stand out like a monument, accessible with an effort, yet a little bit intimidating at the same time, which gave off a very regal aura.

This same style of design would be repeated in the following years at Korumburra and Boobero in 2012, Tamita Island in InWorldz in 2013, and Starfish Reef if 2015.

Other regions adjoining Tamita Bay were Papeete Island, Adonis Beach, Tamita Island, and Iruka Bay.
