Located only two or three blocks from the beach, and only one block from the shops and restaurants on 5th Avenue! I definitely do not feel like I missed out on anything by not staying directly on the beach. In fact, I liked being close to the convenience store to get (cheaper) bottled water. No complaints about the accommodations - the inner courtyard has a swimming pool and foliage. I strongly suggest getting a room that faces the courtyard (instead of the street) in order to avoid street noise.

... full cave. In retrospect, it's no surprise I failed the skills section of the cavern course. I simply wasn't ready yet. So I went back to Singapore with my tail between my legs and trained till I got better, returned and much to the surprise of the instructor, passed the skills section.

... dark then everything goes cloudy and you can’t see a thing for about 20 seconds, take my word, it’s a long 20 seconds!

... played with us for a few hours. It was awesome!
We kept retiring to the pool when we needed a boost, which consisted usually of a long island ice tea or a double stout margarita on ice. Talk about a Jackie Chan back kick to the face. Wa Towwwww! This pool definitely topped my list of bars. It had tables and chairs built into the pool with a swim up bar! Every time our drinks got close to low the bartenders were hot on our ...
... was exactly what we wanted and we spent our first day doing absolutely nothing on the beach beside the ridiculously brilliant aqua-blue water. The second day on the island was an early rise to go see the whale sharks. After a decent boat trip and many dolphin sightings we arrived at the whale shark feeding area and they were everywhere!!! Twenty or more just casually swimming around the boats. We jumped into the water and ...
... br> The beaches are clean. The sand is fine and pretty and looks relatively similar to New York's, although a prettier color and perhaps even a bit more fine than NY, although not as sticky.
But it's the amazing push for cash that seems exploitative. It's not cheap — at all. The local surf shop (even though there's not even a ripple of surf) has prices higher than Hanalei, peso or not.
It's the presence of the animals in town that ...
