Poda Island – The cast away Island 😉
We didn’t plan on this being our last beach day but shortly after this day i got a really bad case of heat rash so my beach days were over for a while. ….So we embark on day five, having missed the boat yesterday we are all sorts of excited to get to Poda Island already. As we approach the ticket office they already know what we want and welcome us with smiles. before we now it we are a sail again this time Poda Island and bound whoop whoop!!!

Poda Island ( the biggest one of the four pictured below
As we approach the island my heart sinks a tiny winy bit as the beach was heaving with overly excited tourist! We dis-embark and join in the madness for a second then make it our mission to find a nice quite spot somewhere.
Most of the tourists are on the main part of the island and again in awe of a good dame rock in the sea ( above). and those that didn’t fancy the rock they spent the day under the tree ( weird) Below.
a little after 10 min walk we found ‘the spot’.unlike the other side of the island which was your bog standard paradise beach, this side had a more unspoilt cast away vibe going on! which was the perfect back drop to a pretty much perfect beach day.
