Exploring by moto

Went down the beach by bus for 4 days off. Checked many places to stay and decided on the Reef Resort as it had aircon & a pool & was about $50 a night.

Spent the next few days exploring all the lovely beaches around the peninsular which have beautiful sunsets over the ocean to the stunning white sand beach of Otres Beach down to the south.

Booked a ticket to do a day trip to Bamboo Island for $8 for the day. We had to walk out to the boat in chest deep water to get on the boat and it took about an hour on the boat, passing several islands. We had 4 hours on the island, which was very relaxing as there wasn't a lot to do. It had a small restaurant ( bamboo hut) where you could hire bamboo chairs for 50c for the day . There was a track to walk to the other side of the island which I did & the rest of the time I swam in the beautiful clear water & read my book & slept..... nice !!!

Checked lots of basic but nice beach bungalows for about $20 a night. Plenty of great restaurants, clothes shops & a very relaxed feel. It is totally different traffic wise from PP & is very spread out over a big peninsular. Great place to unwind for a few days.
