Barefoot Scuba to me, was a magical place in many ways. The A-frame hut that I stayed in was initially hard to adjust to but then it felt like home. It strips your needs down to the bare essentials and I love that about the huts. They provide a comfortable bed, a mosquito net and a roof over your head....

I have always been fascinated by the ocean- the warmth, the waves, the surge, the currents, the deepest of blue and the green jaded than jade. It was always taking a chance, each time I went a little deeper into the lap of the ocean. The magnanimity, the horizon, the calm that had a scare of unpredictability, it filled me...

The property opens onto a semi private beach. It is also conveniently located on the island. Close to the jetty and the market. But the factor which makes...
