Sunset beach lived up to its name: a great location for sunsets. Food: Average breakfasts but delicious lunch and dinners with reasonable servings so you won't go hungry. Good location, a short distance from Wakai. Some phone reception at the restaurant. Value for money at 150,000Rp per person. Snorkelling trips were good with heaps of coral and fish.
Staff are very friendly.
If you're looking for privacy, during the wet season you may find yourself the only one here.
No rats were seen, maybe they have been eliminated.
Only transport from Sunset Beach is Uni's boat, so of she is not here, or does not visit, there is no way to go snorkelling or visit any other islands.
The roof of our hut had a hole in it, which let rain soak our bed during a storm (despite promises it would be fixed shortly after our arrival).
No replies to our three emails and two phonecalls to sunset beach to book accommodation. Luckily Uni was waiting outside the ferry web we got off.
