Where I stayed
The beach, just at the end of the strip has perfect golden sands (if you use your imagination to overlook the littering plastic bottles and fruit peel scattered up the shore). The warm, clear sea water splashes huge waves that knock you off your feet. Beach huts and shacks are lined along the palm tree border, with low tables and big cushions. The locals play cricket on the sand in the afternoons which always draws a crowd of spectators. The beach goes on for miles in one direction and at the other end, restaurants and more colorful stalls bend around the cliff edge – an ideal place to watch the orange sunset over the sea.
We seemed to drift from one day to another and although we only stayed for three days, we quickly acclimatized to the infectious slow pace set by Arambols long stay tourists and felt we’d been there for weeks.
