Where I stayed
Sapi is one of three islands that are now protected national park and purchasing a pass allows you to travel between all three of them. We decided to stick to Sapi as it is the smallest island of the three and without resorts and shops. On arrival to the island we were greeted by large grey masses occupying the crystal clear waters below the pier. When we ventured closer we realized there were thousands of tiny, tiny fish all huddled together. Already we were excited about our potential snorkeling experiences.
Only a few tourists were in sight and we practically had the dense jungle and perfect white sands all to ourselves
The Island was a much needed break from the monotonous and not very adventurous days in KK (although we had only been their for two!). The air was hot and steamy like KK but with a refreshing cool breeze. Our day consisted of reading in the rays of the sun, snorkeling the clear waters and exploring the dense jungle (lots of big Goanna's). Snorkeling found us some very cool looking fish, where we found Nemo and Liam also saw a sea snake which I didn’t stick around to see!.
In the evening as the sun was preparing itself for the great decline, the small groups of tourists left our sleepy island to return to KK. All tourists must leave by 5pm unless they are camping. So it was just our love unit and the group of French tourists left on the shores of Sapi. Liam and I climbed up a rocky face to watch the sunset whilst sipping rice wine mixed with mango juice (definitely my highlight!). We then spent the remainder of the evening lazing around a camp fire, drinking rice wine and playing with the many hermit crabs that scuttled around us. Soon enough we retired to our hot and slightly uncomfortable tent. Through the sleepy night, and into the rose petal dawn we slept, only waking occasionally from the discomforts of our sleeping quarters.
