From the moment we arrived I felt stress, tension and the real world just melt away... The island is beautiful and so tranquil, with only 6 bandas so never more than a handful of guests to share the paradise!
Our hosts greeted us on the beach with fresh coconuts to drink from and then were available to assist with everything from diving trips, Island walks, Dao expeditions to allowing me into the kitchen to join in the cooking (a huge privilege as their chef is extremely skilled!).
If you love water sports then there is diving, snorkelling, kayaking, swimming and more... But if (like me) you are fearful of deep water then the beach is outstanding! Not just white sands and turquoise, crystal clear water but shallow enough all day to enjoy anything from the occasional paddle to a gentle swim to cool off.
What struck us most was the peaceful, calm and quiet pace of life. It was the ultimate relaxation so perfect if you need to get away from it all.
Incidentally, we had sight of dolphins and hump back whales while there and understand there are nesting turtles earlier in the year, so well worth the adventure of getting there!
