We felt very lucky to have been able to gain access to this pretty beach for the day. We came off the cruise liner and hopped on a water taxi with the mind of heading to Villa Beach, as we didn't really know where else to go, but, because we were fairly early off the ship, the guy from the boat said if we paid another $5 each to a different water taxi, he would drop us off and collect us at a desired pre-arranged time from Young Island (and he was there bang on time!!).
We had a lovely day there, we felt very elitest, compared to the herds of people on Villa Beach!! Villa Beach sounded so noisy across the sea and we were in lovely tranquillity! Apparently they only allow 20-25 non-residents on the beach, as they've had complaints from residents, understandably, about all the cruisers landing on the small beach! People were even coming over on boats and being turned away by staff and some were being dropped off in the water, to wade to shore, so that they couldn't be refused!!! It all made for entertaining viewing from our towels!!!
We had a light lunch, of a starter each, which was more than ample for us and was extremely tasty. My husband had a pizza, which was an ideal size for light lunch and I had some chicken gougons which were somehow cooked in coconut, with a dipping sauce - they were delicious!
The rum punch is VERY good and very potent!!! :-)
The Coconut Bar is a lovely feature and ideal for having a cooling drink when the heat of the day hits, to sit and watch the world go by from the sea!
A lovely, pretty little hideaway to visit for the day, if you're lucky enough to be allowed on?! They say Johnnie Depp hired a place there whilst filming Pirates of the Caribbean....?! Enjoy if you make it there!
