|Kite surfers at Green Island|
There are a couple of anchorages to choose from. A favourite is Ricketts Harbour which is a little more secluded, headed by a small beach and rocks to snorkel on down each side. Ten Pound Bay is also very idyllic, but is a tight spot for just one boat so we tend to visit by dinghy. Though frequented daily by the day charter cats these are usually gone by the afternoon. But if you like to people watch, the north side of the island is where it is all happening with mega yachts and lots of kite surfers adding splashes of colour to all the beautiful blues.
Sim and I have had a very relaxed time kayaking, swimming, snorkeling and walking on our own deserted stretch of beach. Underwater a lot of the coral is pretty dead and covered in weed but there are still plenty of fish about and things to look at. The kite surfers are just totally awesome and these windy days have been just ideal for them. Sim wishes he was 20 years younger!
It was the perfect place to spend my 37th birthday, chilling with Sim in one of our favourite anchorages, eating cupcakes, swimming, snorkeling and doing all the fun things that cruising is supposed to be about.
