The 90 minute ferry ride to the island puts us in the mood for the little retreat we have been looking forward to for quite a while. As we enter the serene Harbour, I spot a van with ‘Seasir’ written on the side. Our pick-up has arrived.
On diembarking the ferry, we collect our bags and walk over to the 2 red-shirted Seasir staff who tick our names off their list, and direct us to the van.
The 5 minute trip from the port to the pension is breathtaking – the water is a degree of azure I have never seen before – almost crystal clear.
We arrive and check-in after a quick debrief for those participating in the sea-activities (we decline a 2-hour snorkeling trip due to its excessive $100 p/p cost; opting to take our own snorkeling set to the beach ourselves).
Our twin-bedded Western room is spacious yet at the same time compact with a pre-fabricated Japanese-style bathroom, small TV, and very comfy beds (I sleep for 11 hours – a record).
Breakfast, lunch, and dinner is included in the tarif and is simple yet delicious – set menu for lunch, and buffet for dinner.
The staff are extremely friendly and patient – and suggest we rent a bike to explore the island which we do. And after a day in the sun, we enjoy the roof-top jacuzzi to relax out tired muscles.
