24. – 28. Mar 2019
Having arrived at the island, we took the bus to San Luis where our hostel Big V Raizal Home was located. There, we were given a warm welcome by the local family owning the house. Having had a relaxed afternoon at Sound Bay Beach, we had a good night watching the locals sing and dance. I got up early these days, spending the mornings at the beach, watching the sun rise. One day, we walked around the island having a look at the rock formations, the clear blue ocean, palm coves, and some small villages. Having seen the island, we spent the afternoon and the next day at Cocoplum Beach where I walked/swam over to Rocky Cay, a tiny island in the middle of the sea, and an old ship wreck where I snorkeled with a local in order to spot many colorful fish and corals.
For the last two nights, we moved to Palmare House at another part of the island. How crazy it was to get there with a buggy and with the wrong address… But we had many locals helping us with that. Our last day on the island was just spent relaxing at Spratt Bight, the city beach, before we took a flight to the mainland the next morning.
