... from a small amount of old seaweed the beach and waters were mainly clear of it. We spent every day at some point on the beach enjoying the perfect weather, with always a bit of a breeze.
One day we hired a golf cart for a couple of hours, at 300 pesos (just over a tenner) to explore the rest of the island as we didn't fancy cycling in the heat. It was our first time in a golf cart and after seeing kids driving them about we thought ...
