TRAVELOGUE 4::Wish I was a Mermaid:*


We left for Belle Mare which is towards the east of the island, right in the morning, and today’s schedule was sport activities and more P1040713of water games. Quickly we finished the breakfast by 9.30 in the morning and were all set for an hour drive. And we started with tube ride and then para sailing was super fun. Some of us had already done them before but some had tried it for the first time and loved the experience. The water was virgin blue and the corals could be seen clearly. Sparkling water all around, we were awestruck by the cleanliness at the beach .The sea urchins around made us a little harder to walk around the shore. Then was the best part of the day that all of us were super excited for – UNDER SEA WALK – Had a wonderful time. As we put on the oxygen helmet in our head with jelly shoes we went straight under the sea. It was walk under the sea with fishes and corals. Going for the underwater Sea Walk is like going for an underwater tour inside the reef, walking between corals, seeing variety of fish, and discovering the rich sea life underwater in the crystal clear blue water of the lagoon. And there I wish I was a mermaid J and felt like one for one for next fifteen minutes. Under sea walk is not scary at all and usually people are afraid when they are more than 9 feet down, but with the oxygen helmet it is just fine. And they also give you instructions properly, in case you are troubled you can just show them a sign with thumbs up that means you got to go up and shaky hands are that you have a problem. And when you love it they just get to know with your expression. It is a true once in a life time experience for all the non-divers out there! And one off from the list of water sports:-Under sea walk 🙂


And the next half of the day we went to an island – Ila Aux Surfe on a speed boat ride. We could just spend a whole day there but we got only 2 hours to be there or else the boat back to the place where we started would be missed and we would be left deserted. It would have been WILD. And now when I think about it “What would we do if that happens?”. Call for help by burning shoes, oops we were wearing beach slippers. Damn, some other option then. So, it was swimming and chilling at the island and the next on the list is SCUBA DIVING.
