Ocean Beach Resort
Today is a free day to chill out and relax.
Ocean Beach Resort is a 'get-away-from it all' hideaway about
3km from the main Catba island. Away from the noise and activity of the mainland here you can enjoy complete rest and relaxation. Development on the island has been limited to one lovely little resort, so it easily retains the feel of a real island hideaway. It's a wonderfully peaceful place to wander, or find a quiet spot on the beach to relax and swim in the warm waters.
Being the only building on an isolated island, the resort is designed to be unobtrusive and ecologically-friendly. It's small and basic but exclusive and comfortable.
For your entertainment you can enjoy some resort
activities such as swimming, kayaking, volleyball or just relax on the white sandy beach in front of your bungalow.
For those who are interested, there is also the opportunity to do a spot of night fishing
Spending your time here feasting on the superb cuisine served by
the Vietnamese hosts, soaking up the tropical atmosphere. As you relax on a bamboo chair, sipping a cocktail in the waterside bar watching the magical sunset over the
ocean, you won't want to leave.
