The next logical place to break our cruise after Honey River was the Radames islands; islands with some villages, sandy beaches and clear water.
Today the wind and swell were coming in from the NW so picked a spot on the SE side off a white beach and a resort. Later we went to visit the resort and found they had no guests, but seemed to be getting ready to open soon. Next to the resort is a small local community and a boat builder. The gentleman was re-planking and re-caulking a ferry boat. He had another mid size boat under construction in his 'yard'.
We liked this island, very pretty, and a quiet anchorage overnight. In the morning I went snorkelling and found healthy corals about 50m off the beach with plenty of fish life. In a falling tide the water wasn't clear - about 8m visibility.
