This place is amazing! It is really incredible due to its three gorgeous beaches surrounding the resort, and the really friendly owners, Nina and Darren, who make sure your stay is memorable. The fales are very basic, but clean and comfortable. The bathrooms with solar heated showers (only hot when there is sun) are a shortish walk from your fale. The snorkeling nearby is amazing, as is the kayaking. We visited four islands in Tonga, and this was our favorite place. I would highly recommend it.

... totally a tourist trap. I say tourist trap with affection - the shops were really great. I stopped in one shop and bought some cards, a small box with a likeness of Our Lady of Guadalupe (remember, I have a thing for her) and a nice pendant. Then we went to Cayucos, another small town, equally as charming as Cambria, and then finally we arrived in Moros Bay. The attraction in ...
