There are just a handful of freestanding bungalows here, running in a single row back from the beach, meaning only the first one has real beach views. The large elevated wooden building, once home to the restaurant, now hosts large rooms which sleep three—ideal for families. The restaurant has been moved down to ground level, unfortunately losing much of the terrific view.

Upon arrival, a friendly and welcoming Western woman wandered down to the beach so say hello and show us around. We were shown the first bungalow, which sits right by the sand; while being extremely rustic, it has a colourful paintjob and bright linens within. Inside there is an open-to-the-air bathroom with a bucket-flush Western loo and out front a veranda plenty big enough for a hammock. The bungalows are old and weathered and feel every part of their age—we don’t think there was a straight angle in the entire bungalow—but for the guest not too fussed about simple living, this could be a decent albeit sleepy choice.

The location makes Sunset the closest spot to Wakai, which lies just 20 minutes away by boat. This is a convenient spot if you don’t want to stray too far, or if you have an early departure from Wakai. While the beach is of a decent length, the sand is a little rough and has the remnants of a small retaining wall. The coral had certainly seen better days, but there were plenty of fish that we could see from the boat as we gently coasted in.

And don't forget the sunsets—as the name suggests, Sunset Beach is ideally placed for them!
