Relaxing on Ngapoli Beach

A delayed flight and short ride later, we arrived at Ngapoli Beach. This beach area had been a favorite destination of a former colleague of ours, and now we were about to be captivated by its beauty. The sun was already setting, so I quickly brought out my camera and snapped a few photos, capturing the intensely warm colors through the palm fronds before the light faded. We had but one day to take in the quiet, clean beach and clear, warm waters. The pace here was decidedly slower and low-key. Seafood, tropical drinks, and coconut water was plentiful. Women balancing plates of fruit on their heads walked the shoreline, hoping to make a few sales from the limited number of beach-goers. Between some long beach walks, reading under the umbrella, tide-pool critter searching, and some swimming in the waves, time quickly went by.
