The island is an incomparable barefoot paradise: private cottages are hidden in the dappled shade. The soothing rhythms of tide and time will ease your entire being - mind, body and soul.
Yesterday was our first green turtle hatchling of the season. After 55 days growing underground, the newborns come out of their shells and make their way to the top. They then start their journey down the beach towards the sea where they will spend the next five years floating on the surface all around the world through oceanic currents before being big enough to dive down. At around 20 years, the females will reach sexual maturity and return to lay their eggs on the same beach on which they were born.
