An example of amazing natural beaty. We were crossing by boat and enjoying the calm blue water with fresh fruits, gentle breeze and live musical on the boat.

This was part of a stop on our full day tour. Words cannot describe how good the views are while on the boats, the people are extremely friendly and the beach is so nice.
