Day two started and ended on a leisurely note, exactly as we had planned. After breakfast at the Beachcomber Café, we took a stroll along the beach. When overhanging coconut trees or other vegetation blocked our path, we waded into the shallow waters of the turquoise lagoon and swam around them, mindful of the rough reef formations that protruded from the white sands—to protect us and the reef.
After our beach walk, we returned to our villa, collected water bottles, and stowed our cameras in the baskets on our bikes before we went for a ride around the island. Every villa has it own bicycles, and they are numbered so you can identify yours.
In the afternoon, we shopped at the boutique for a few souvenirs, one of which was a prized jar of Brando honey, and then spent two hours sunbathing before we headed to the spa for a massage.
Over dinner at Les Mutinés, we mapped out day three of our visit.
