When we stopped by this charming little bungalow operation next to The Mangrove Hideaway, a woman in a towel who had just hopped out of the shower greeted us.
It gives an idea of the casual vibe to be expected here. A handful of small but cheerful concrete bungalows are clustered around a shady lawn that stretches right to the water's edge. A few kayaks are available for exploring the mangroves, and the guesthouse runs one of the area's larger restaurants just across the road. Well-kept rooms are cooled by either fan or air-con, with lime green walls, a few windows, firm beds, hot water bathrooms and even small TVs and fridges. The smaller rooms are fine for solo travellers or couples, while the larger editions have numerous beds and are great options for families travelling on a budget. The guesthouse makes an excellent homebase for exploring the area.
