We stayed on Flora Beach resort, which was spectacular. The sand was as fine as flour and the water so clear it was like glass. Life here is so relaxing. The scenery is just amazing. There are no roads to the other parts of the islands, only small boat taxis that go from beach to beach and a couple of jungle trails that you can take if you feel like a hike. There are hardly any people here, so you mostly just have the flying foxes and lizards for company.
We went snorkelling with tons of tropical fish in the coral reefs, they just swim right up to you to see whats happening
Next we went looking for sharks. And we found them. Black tip reef sharks. They are so quick and about 6 feet long. They dissappear as soon as you spot them so its very hard to get a picture, but you get quite a scare when they come up behind you and pass you by, expecially the first time. I actually nearly had about 7 heart attacks. I'll stick up a photo of one later.
Apart from the snorkelling (and getting sunburned while doing it) theres not much else to do here except eat and relax. Which is the whole idea of an island paradise right? Except I can't sit still for more than 5 minutes, I had Aishlings head wrecked. The resort had a little book rental shop though so that came in handy for keeping the ould mind occupied for a while.
All in all I'd say this was one of the best parts of our trip so far. As hyper as I am it still was really relaxing. Highly recommended.
