Lovely apartments just a few metres from the beach. The pool and hot tub are great too and have a lot of shady areas which is good to cool down in. Well equipped rooms and helpful staff.

These are our last three weeks. Where has the time gone. Flicking through the photos since ...
... to the beach. The visibility was AWESOME! We saw a variety of neon colored fish and coral. Tim and Eric tried out their GoPro and shot videos underwater. I found the calmness I fell in love with when we used to scuba. At the end of the day as we were walking back to the boat, what do we see but a black tipped shark!!! Thank goodness we didn't see it on the way TO the beach or worse, while ...
