Please note that we do not have a “traditional” beach in front of the lodge – as you will see on the pictures.
It is more like a giant lagoon, as the water pulls back for about 300m at low tide and comes up to 20m from the houses at high tide.
You can swim in front of the lodge or you can easily walk along the beach (especially during low tide) to other lodges
and restaurants on the beach front.
About 500 meters up the coastline you will find more “traditional” sandy beaches with palm trees – although no big waves
as the water is more like a lagoon.
