A couple of weeks ago I went fishing (trying anyway) on the rocks to the right of main beach (Ocheuteal - as you come to the pier you turn right and there are some rocks further way).
Some foreign guy came about 20/30 meters from me and left his stuff and went snorkling, I didn't think much of it until my hook got stuck in the rocks and I kept pulling hard and broke my cheap Chinese fishing rod (damn rubbish !), I turned around and saw a kid was stealing all his clothes and other stuff this guy left on the rocks.
I shouted and whistled but the kid disappeared like a jack-rabbit. The guy came out and went after him but that kid was so fast he was almost flying over the big rocks. There was no way to catch him.
Anyway, be careful around there, I think on the beach where the bars are it is not too bad but around that area, it is very isolated. I wonder if the kid knew this guy's routine and was waiting for him, because what are the chances that he was just passing by !?
I packed and left, sobbing at my own loss of hooks, line I had to cut and a broken rod, but I hope that guys didn't loose much.
Speaking to an ex-pat he said police probably knows all the kids stealing stuff in the area so if he goes to them and give description they probably can recover expensive stuff and can arrange a return for a fee !? (good to know !)
