You better know what you are getting into before you arrive at Beachcomber. We had chartered a 50 ft sailboat the year before and heard all the stories of Beachcomber being a "party" place. Since they had a well managed dive program run by Subsurface we decided to make it a week of diving. We got the nicest beach bure away from the main building and settled in to 3 dives a day.
Our beach bure was a bargain since similar bures that go for $700 a night on other islands. But this is a backpackers resort so most guests pack into the grand bure and party. The food provided was local and fine for me being a vegetarian but fancy it's not. Service is in the sand at long communal tables ala summer camp.
Our thatched roof bure was oceanfront with a nice deck and umbrella. Plenty of room for our dive gear and a small fridge to keep cold beer. The attraction here is the great diving and that will not disappoint. If you don't dive and aren't looking to party there's not much else to do. We had a great time but be careful and read these reviews!
