          Amazing Amarela

          Such a nice place. Very private set on a hillside with great views and its own private beach. Amarela Resort is a small place with only 24 rooms and suites but feels much larger. The restaurant is fabulous with a good verity of dishes. It has snorkeling gear, kayaks, ping pong, darts and a small art gallery. You can lounge at the pool or take a stroll on the beach its up to you. This place really takes care of you. Visit the gift shop too! It is away from Alona Beach so you need a tricycle to get back and forth if you want to go there. The wonderful staff will arrange a pick-up for you. But to be honest once you get there, there is no reason to leave.

          ... I compare diving to sex, even when it's bad it's still pretty good. The reef at Balicasag was beautiful and colorful, with both hard and soft coral, and an abundance of schools of fish. The highlight (or low point) of the second day of diving was another diver in my group, an older, not very attractive Aussie man, who on the boat was telling me he was a life model, or ...

          And on the Fourth Day . . .

          ... We chartered our own boat and had with a very good crew of three for the day as we headed out to Balicasag Island. This is a small remote island with the best diving around this area. We think it has around 500 or so folks on it. No roads and you can walk around the island in 45 minuutes. We hit the first two dives and then broke for lunch which appropriately was noodles, but man, sitting on the beach overlooking the ocean after doing two dives, ...

          ... cacophony of moving vehicles and people that the Asians do so well. We can’t find anywhere to buy a ticket, it’s all a bit unnerving. There is nothing but a series of numbered doors, hot sweaty people in lines at each door and buses going left, right and centre. J-she goes into travel stress mode, sure it’s confusing and chaotic, but we’re not going to die. (Though I can’t guarantee that) Eventually we discover that 'Door 15’ is all the buses on our ...

          ... sea life from starfish to eels and then a turtle! It was probably around 3 foot long we did our best to get as close as possible and once he disappeared we saw another 2! Dolphins and turtles before 9:30 Not a bad morning. After snorkelling we returned to Balicasag island for lunch, none of us was hungry as we had not long before eaten but we had to wait around for the old Ned Flanders/Antony Keidis look alike and in the process get bored ...

          ... from the 20 acre sanctuary portion. They estimate 10 Tarsiers Live indies the enclosure, and maybe a 100 or so altogether. Every day the guides spend 2 hours in the morning seeking the spots where the nocturnal and solitary little guys have parked themselves also they can show them to us tourists. Today they had found 4 of them, 2 were down low near the trail and easy to view, and 2 were high up in the bush. Needless to say, they are cuteness incarnate ...
