A perfect place where you do not need a car, you can walk everywhere or take the little Tuk tuk taxis or uber. Loads of places to eat. Beautiful scenery and warm seas.
The beach, a rare whale sighting, great restaurants, a calming and relaxed holiday place.

About Guest Houses
For a more down to earth experience there are guest houses. Less expensive than hotels, they offer a more homey environment, as well as more privacy. Converted from a private house it’s a much gentler environment and for those with furry friends, there are also pet friendly options. They are usually well situated with shops and places of interest nearby. Being so small it offers a much more personal and intimate attention to it’s upkeep, leaving you with a more polished and homely experience.
