The Pompously Place

I stopped on the highway near a restaurant to have the best view of the islet linked to the mainland with artificial pebble beaches. This place, built by traders and fishermen in the 15th century who lived there, became a city hotel in 1960 and thanks to famous painters who recognized this old town as a tourist attraction. Then I went down the road and high stairs to the left corner of the beach.  Some parts of the beach were reserved for guests who payed the high price for renting a sunbed and a parasol, but they were mostly empty. The sea was not warm nor cold. Both the black sand beach and the sea were a little bit different of those I was used to. I wanted to swim around the island but there were some motorboats and it was not safe. Showers on the beach were free and worked properly.

The road to the island and the Hotel Aman was watched by several guards. Some tourists took photos in front of it and walked away. On the other side of the road was a beach with more elegant parasols and beachbeds but nobody was there. Guess why! I will use the TB word for the hotel's price: ridiculously expensive. In the night the whole island was almost in the dark, there were only 2-3 houses with the light turned on. So much about it!

Nice little blog with great photos. Of course it is a fabulous place, but for some reason it is definitely a tourist trap.
