Turtles come here to lay their eggs but I was not fortunate enough to see any. I know one thing, if I could lay eggs this is where I would do it. Of course, if I could lay eggs I’d probably be in the circus.
It turns out the owner (Miriam) was here for the tsunami in 2004 and she has a fascinating tale to tell. After finishing breakfast on that fateful day she was in the kitchen (in the restaurant of her small guesthouse if I am not mistaken) when she suddenly and most inconveniently found herself submerged under a few meters of water. She does not really remember exactly how it went, only that one minute she was in her kitchen and the next swirling around underwater. She told me swimming was extremely difficult because it was impossible to determine what was up and what was down. What seemed like an eternity was probably only tens of seconds at the most but she was to find herself on the ground outside next to a tree, which she promptly climbed.
