... about our 10km bike ride back in the dark. So as soon as the sun went down we rushed on our way back to our village. Us girls were super stressed! In some parts we couldn't see a thing. But horrah, I survived to tell the tale, and moments like these all add to the adventure. Back in our village we sat down to a lovely meal; I had a delicious grilled white snapper - eyes and everything! And all for the grand price of £2.50, and this was considered as an expensive meal. - ...
... place so we went for a walk to the bazaar. Here we attempted sorting out emails at an Internet cafe, again, no such luck, the internet was down! We went for a meal instead (which was nice) and went back to our hot concrete room. We were going to go and see the Cellular Prison but decided to do that when we arrived back after our island hopping as it 'apparently' had an 8pm closing time. Pft! - ...
... UK but if they made it this interesting I would do it more often, give more Indians PSV licences that's what I say. We went through the usual paperwork check and then boarded the fast ferry. the hotel had packed us breakfast so with two rucksacks and an Indian takeaway we were off, we had thee days gear in our rucksacks compared with other people having huge cases so we should blend in well. It is a two hour trip but after an hour the captain announced they had a problem with ...

Knowing this made our ...

The last dive was back to The Wall again as we hadn't seen much of it the day before. We were much calmer this time so our air lasted longer. We had a nice long dive and saw loads of fish including a couple more majestic Napoleon Wrasse and several shoals of fish containing hundreds of members which sometimes surrounded us.

A lovely resort with a fantastic sea view. One only needs to step out of the room to reach the beautiful beach. It is about 15 mins walk along the beach to the Sunset Point. Cycles for hire are available near the resort. The food is good. There are buffet meals for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. The staff is friendly and helpful.
However, it is a bit on the expensive side. Especially since the rooms are very tiny and there's hardly any space to move. I personally feel that Rs. 3000/night for such a (non-ac) room is not worth it. I will give it 3 stars because it is not value for money.
