I woke up at half 9, surprisingly early after a night out in town, I wanted to make the most out of a day by the beach soaking up the sun. Quickly ate some breakfast, which wasn't the best we've had, but not bad enough to make me lower my ratings of this amazing hostel! I went straight to the beach with Denise, Sarah, Barney and Sebastian, literally a couple of steps from the hotel as it was directly ahead of us. Today was our first proper full day of being out in the sun so we were all in our bikinis and I took out the hostel's kayak and Denise went for a swim and then hitched a ride with me. I love kayaking!

It was so nice to just chill out by the beach, take a dip then kayak :) Sebastian then joined us with the kayaks and challenged us to kayak all the way out to this island, all the way around it and then back to the beach! So we did, Sebastian took Denise, and off we went! Some bits were bloody hard to kayak against the current but it was awesome! Barney kayaked after us and I passed him on my way back and a turtle swam beside our kayaks which was beyond cool!

We sunbathed for a bit (Aisling had stumbled home by now, cheeky, and Lauren, Aoife and her were still dead, fast asleep!) Lauren and Aisling came out at about 2 to join us for lunch, but Lauren felt too rough, so went back to the hostel! The food took a lifetime to arrive- over an hour we were waiting- nightmare- but we were right on the beach so couldn't complain that much! The food was good and we fed our leftovers to this dog that was looking desperately at us haha.

I went out in the kayak again and Aisling went for a swim, then we watched the sun go down which was really pretty.

We then played a game of rummy and sat down for a meal at the hostel- all you can eat pizza for 20 reales!! They just kept bringing out all sorts of pizzas- amazing!

We then went upstairs to the chill out balcony and watched Love Actually.
