Thanks sharon for your hospitality and wonderfull food. We miss the view from your balkony, the castara lokals and the fishprawns, if you remember. Always felt save and welcome. Hope to come back sometimes.
A beautiful location, right on the Caribbean. Heavenly Bay (part of Castara Bay) is just that-great for swimming, snorkeling, boats, birds, fish and the locals are very friendly. Castara is very safe and quite calm with the usual activity of a village.
The apartments are relaxed-not fussy. Clean, with comfortable bed and kitchen. You can hire cleaning but we just did it ourselves with clean sheets supplied every few days. Balcony looks over Castara and Heavenly Bay, and out along the coast toward Plymouth and beyond. The owner, Sharon is a great resource for where, what, when, and how. She also runs the Boat House Restaurant on the Beach with Caribbean and seafood, which arrives from the fishing boats almost everyday. How about catching your own and being served it BBQ'd on a beach...check out Alibaba's tour..best day we had there. Small groups with great services and fun.
Do opt for a hired driver from the airport or ferry terminal. Sharon will arrange that and any other trips or tours you wish. The roads are narrow but the residents know how to drive them! Buses can be intermittent but are in great shape. They are air conditioned too.
The apartments are not air conditioned but the sea breeze along with electric fans, ceiling fan and option of wide open doors kept us very comfortable. Do use the netting around the bed for sleeping comfort.
Many adventures from the energetic walk into the village proper (5-10 minutes) to a hike up to the waterfall or to the settlers cemetery. Experience the food at several stores/fresh veg & fruits/fish auctions (if you can get a word in) lol, and many various restaurants.
We will be back!!
