  • A very pretty small shaded road leads to the lighthouse restored by the Americans after the tsunami. Before we get there along a lovely little Bay where colorful canoes delight of photographers. You can buy fresh fish and shrimp plush. Not very friendly fishermen.

  • You can't go inside the lighthouse but it adds a nice historical view. There is a small island nearby and you can go there by a boat and have a nice time in the evening.  more »
  • Awesome place. Reminder of the old Portuguese days -sobering reminders of the tsunami and a very pleasant boat trip out on the lagoon. Loved the palmy rah showroom  more »
