Photo of Castaway Beach Bungalows
They have just a clutch of wood and rattan-faced bungalows, each with a good sized deck, well positioned to take in the beach outlook. There’s a hammock and a lazy bench on each deck where you can relax while the palm frond roof rustles in the breeze.

Bungalows are fan-cooled, with hot water bathrooms, free WiFi and a mosquito-net shrouded bed. While there is no restaurant right on site, Castaway is right beside the Highway Bar – a rustic beach shack bar and restaurant and there are other solid seafood restaurants along the beach here – you won’t starve.

There really isn’t much more to this place – there were no staff (nor guests) on site when we wandered through, but a room was open for display, so we took a poke around and liked the look of what we saw. Normally we’d mention the proximity to the road (Castaway backs right onto it) but there is very little traffic on this part of the island, so we doubt it is much of an issue.

The beach here is very very shallow for a long way out, so you won’t be doing your diving practise here, but it is find for a paddle, is great for young kids, and it is stunning at sunset. If you’re looking for a sleepy getaway, this is a solid option.

If you want something more typically resorty, Lipstick Cabana and Hinkong Hut are both at the northern end of the bay and are reasonable options. At the southern end of the bay you’ll find The Ford Sunset resort which has quite a few rooms, making it a safe bet if you’re here in high season and are struggling to find a bed.
