Once through the reef we were escorted into this beautiful anchorage by a local boat that asked for matches in return. We were greeted by a pod of dolphins that hung out for the day feeding on an abundance of small fish.
There was also a large number of jelly fish in the water. The locals pointed to where there was a fresh water stream. We were looking forward to maybe being able to wash off some of the salt but we weren’t counting on much as it hasn’t rained much on this side of the island.
We spent two days exploring the various pools filled with nibbling fish, swam, bathed and did all of our salty laundry. Two days of walking around comfortably in the nude enjoying our own private swimming hole. We saw bats, dolphins and turtles. And after the initial encounter with the locals we were on our own to explore the mangroves by Kayak or dinghy. Our favorite anchorage so far!!
