How far are local shops and restuarants and what is there to do in the area please
Dear Mr.Wendy H,
Thank you for your query. Local shops and restaurants are near by to the resort, approximately 5-6 km for local gift shops and restaurants are in walking distance. The resort has a lot of activities within the premises such as fish feeding, play station room, box cricket, karaoke, volley ball, swimming pool and water ball. We have private access to the beach where the water sports are conducted by the outside vendors not governed by the hotel.
There are no local shops and you have to use a little expensive taxi transport to go into town
Location is good for beach access and a relaxed atmosphere
Local shops for groceries are at walk-able distance. However, you need to travel 6kms for shopping.
Resort provides private access to beach. It also has children play area, volleyball, etc.
If you are a nature lover, walking around in the neighbouring areas is a soothing experience.
Local shops for urgent needs (provision etc) are at walkable distance. There’s also a liquor shop about 50m from the resort.
For actual shopping, you will need to drive down for about 5-7 km.
When we visited the place, I saw two restaurants in the vicinity but they didn’t seem to be interesting.
There’s a church at a nearby hilltop from where you can get a full view of the coastline. But I too got this info from a good driver who drove us back to the airport. Will visit next time
