Best holiday EVER!
I've just returned from four amazing days at LEI and can't tear myself away from the website's news updates - I wish I was still there. I expected a pretty good holiday with decent snorkelling. What we got were the most amazing snorkelling experiences I've ever had, including many varied encounters with turtles, getting up close and personal with a huge manta ray, and swimming with a huge variety of large and small fish, not to mention all the other sea creatures we saw. Love the blue starfish! We booked LEI as my son is a huge turtle fan, and I hoped he might be able to see one or two around and about. His wildest dreams were exceeded as he observed three nesting turtles and was able to see one of them off back into the water, saw little hatchlings, and swam with, touched and played with numerous turtles in the water. His first time snorkelling was the most amazing experience he could have hoped for - he even located Nemo's school! The vibe on the island was so relaxed and never crowded due to the limited numbers of accomodation available, the food was great and hungrily received after a full day on the reefs! We can't wait to return with the hope to pluck up the courage to get over to the shark pool next time! I can't recommend LEI highly enough, but then again, part of me wants to keep it secret :)
