This place is paradise. Great location for surfing, fishing and relaxing. No TV, internet or phones to distract you(satellite phone if needed). Pete and Marge are fantastic hosts and Bobby will make sure you are well looked after. Will definitely be going back.

Papatura was a sensational place to get away from technology, the hectic schedules of life and totally relax in a picture perfect location. The hospitality and food were special and the surfing/fishing/snorkelling were awesome.
