Just as Chrisbaz said, Young Island second time around was even better. We too were on our second visit in 2 years and found Young Island to be everything we remembered and more. Words just cannot express how you feel when you step of that boat onto the jetty and taste your first rum punch in 12 months. Greeted by Bianca and James who remember you so fondly from the year before, cottage number 6 ready and waiting for us once again, it was just like coming home. We found it very hard to tear ourselves away from the seclusion and relaxing that the Island has to offer but our curiousity got the better of us and we headed off for an island tour, taking as sneaky peak into Buccament Bay on our journey with our guide and taxi driver "Smokey". Although we found Buccament Bay impeccably clean and neat it was like a picture post card, no soul, no character and we couldn't wait to get back to the friendly, relaxed atmosphere on Young Island. As I said in last years review Young Island is not flashy and sparkly but it has character and imperfections that make it truly authentic and make it the place we want to return to year on year. We met Chrisbaz in 2012 and kept in touch and have met more guests this year that we now class as friends, it truly is a magical place. The coconut bar was a place to meet new friends and sample Nei's rum cocktail in a coconut, try and swim back to shore after one of those if you can.
The food is amazing, crab backs, lobsters, duck breast, steaks, fish caught fresh from the sea that day and how could we forget the "coconut bread", i now have to find a recipe as my husband is addicted to it.
I won't go on as I can't improve on what we class as perfection. Apart from a few thank you's
Bianca and the office staff, James, Neil, Ivan (at the bar) Samanth and friends at the restaurant who served us the most fantastic food in the most fantastic way. The ferry men, the gardeners and all the housekeeping staff. Thank you for making our holiday THE most relaxing and enjoyable time of our whole year.
P.S. I have only one recommendation - don't change a thing !!!!! We'll be back !
