We had planned to stay at Crocodylus Village, but a cyclone caused enough damage there that we could not stay. However, we were able to take a lovely side trip - the overnight kayak paddle trek to snapper island. We got a sense of our hosts, who helped us set up from the trip and clean up after - and they were lovely! I'd have loved to stay. The trip to Snapper Island was magical. It is a stunning island, and we were able to snorkle in several spots, wander around the beaches, and enjoy the stars. We went with one other travelor, and the tour includes the guide making us a lovely dinner and breakfast, as well as lunches, and setting up tents for us all. I can't say enough good things about the experience - it was refreshing, fun, intriguing, beautiful, peaceful - and we were treated so wonderfully! It was just a great experience. If you have the chance, like to kayak and snorkle, this is a great change from the more crowded experiences on the reef.
