    ... oath between the road and sand, which I swear is the toilet! It’s quite humbling but they are still friendly and we manage to turn the stares into smiles by waving and smiling. The beach starts off with the home build shelters followed by the nets and boats and then the ramshackle market along the roadside. Homemade knives set in a block of wood allows them to slice and dice the fish in seconds…..from shrimps to huge tuna it all actually ...

    ... as a thank you for the day, but Ashmitha wouldn’t let us and paid for all three of us... these guys are so friendly!

    ... many hotels & guest houses, a beach (they may need to clean that up a bit) but the place lacks people. There's just no-one about. It's sad really because the locals are nice & its evident that they put alot in for the tourist. I did notice that my Lonely Planet guide is missing information for this place so maybe that could be a reason. A lot of the shops have men sat outside chipping away at stone making ornaments.
