Of course, you may wonder what we'd be doing spending 5 days on a tiny little island with no shopping, no TV, no spa, no internet. Nothing much I would say. We'd wake up, have breakfast, jump into the sea. Most of the time Robin would ask us to tag along when he brought the divers out to the different dive sites. Get back to the resort, have lunch, then snorkel again, and then come back, shower, dinner, take a walk on the beach or simply sit down and interact a bit with the other guests.
A lot of divers would visit this island but we think, even if you're only snorkeling, it's still phenomenal. Although you don't get to see the many beautiful creatures in the deeper waters, you'll still be able to see some beautiful things that is just less than 30 meters away from the shore.
Some might ask about the food. Well, the kitchen is run by a young mother (her 3-year-old is the only tiny human being on the island), the food tasted very good, and they were generously portioned. It almost felt like home.
We don't have a professional camera, it's just a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX36, in a waterproof bag. And these are some of the photos that we took: -
|anemone - closed but we can still see the clown fish swimming in it!|
|another anemone, try to spot a different species of anemonefish in it.|
see it? at the center top of the photo, the white stripe is on its back, the pink anemonefish
|a pair of pink anemonefish, a.k.a. pink skunk clownfish, in their anemone home|
|look at the landscape|
|the amazing colours|
|a giant clam, just about 18" wide|
|the clearest photo that we have taken of a clown fish - very shallow water, approx. 1 meter deep, with the sunlight.|
|a beautiful giant clam - the most beautiful we've ever seen!|
|see the yellow, blue and white little things? they are Christmas tree worms|
|this is Robin, the cheeky DM|
|a blue starfish, we've seen a few of them, spans just about 1 foot|
|the beautiful sunset|
And we have decided, by the end of our second day, that we will return, for sure!!
