Blue Monkey Cottages is a great place to stay if you want to get away from the busy life. It is very peaceful and harmonic. The cottages has its own little beach, they have snorkel and googles if you need to borrow. The owners live in one of the cottages, but if you are a group of more than five they will move out of their cottage and give it to you.You will also be alone in the cottages, they only book in one group og couple at a time. Amina and Faysal are helpful and give you all the information you need to have a good stay, they organize to pick you up in Shimoni. They also have a lot of cats, just so you know. We didn't bring plastic shooes but we should have. If you bring you can explore the beach right outside the cottages. The beach is full of sea urchins and corals.
