Blue Monkey Beach Cottages
The owners' love for nature clearly shows in the eco-conscious construction of the cottages. Mainly local material from the island has been used; rough stones and shells make up the walls and the mangrove roof constructions are covered with palm shingles.A solar installation caters for all energy needs. Since there is no ground water on the island and its inhabitants have to entirely rely on rainwater collected in communal cisterns, the cottages are equipped with water saving bucket showers. Waste water is used for plants and solid waste material is composted.
You should not be surprised to encounter Blue monkeys, monitor lizards, chameleons, duikers, cats, birds, and a donkey named Habib.
Each cottage has sea view, a 2 x 2 m (6' x 6') double bed, an additional single bed (incl. mosquito nets), a sitting/writing area, a shower/toilet, and a large roofed terrace including cooking area for self-caterers (fireplace & charcoal cooker).
Egrets and storks feeding in the intertidal zone can be watched from the comfort of chairs set in the shade of a baobab tree, and with a bit of good luck a school of resident Humpback dolphins can be spotted playing around with their befriended bottlenose dolphins.
