This little village used to be the place where local fishing boats anchored. Since the tourism boom in 2016 locals have started to transform the area into fishing farms and restaurants all in one. You can see fresh seafood swimming in submersible cages and you...More

A potentially beautiful beach but marred by dirt from food scraps and various debris at the edge between sand and vegetation. The water is a bit murky. The fishing village and the wooden walkway to the restaurant on stilts are certainly intriguing and spectacular but...More
