Chumbe and all it’s authentic perfections

Awe…the Eco huts with all the rustic touches. The endless amount of many colorful corals. From chartreuse to lavender and every rainbow in between. Textures from small to large.
Ginormous clams know one would ever believe the size. Thank goodness Rob, my husband caught them with video on our snorkeling adventure.
Coconut crabs are such a sight to see in person. They are a orange-reddish color and can also be a blue tones.
They are nocturnal mainly and only usually only venture at night.
Hermit crabs are at an abundance and must be careful walking around at night.
John the chef is such a talent! Everything from fresh seafood, beef skewers and all under the brightest stars we have ever seen. You could see every consolation at its best.
Our favorite by chef John was by far his dessert; “Oats Cake”
We loved it so much he made it for us a second time.
Also, shared the recipe.
He made the most amazing spiced pumpkin soup that I will try to make for my friends & family.
The staff that runs Chumbe Island is so kind, personable, and really go above & beyond to make sure you take in the island to the fullest!
We met a delightful couple on their honeymoon.
More New Yorkers and boy what a won
fantastic time we shared with them. (Jess & John)
The girls went sailing in the Chumbe Island “sailboat”
It is made out of wood from the mango & nutmeg tree.
It was a blast! Lots of laugh, splashes & waves.
We had a dinner under the stars with them and visited a few hours into the night.
We had such an enjoyable time and love crossing paths & making new friends along our travels.
We did the jungle walk at 5pm
We learned a ton about all the plants, dead coral that covers the island and lots of poisonous plants.
We also climbed the lighthouse and captured the sunset.
Overall from the minute we put our toes in the sand and the sparkling aqua water until the time we did it again when we left.
We loved every second we spent on Chumbe Island and would love to visit it again someday.
