It’s located just a few metres from the sea - get your cameras ready as this is a very rare sight! Last but not least, we visit Passion Island, home to flocks of pink flamingos. Afterwards, we’ll hop on our boat, enjoy a few drinks and try to catch the silky sunset on the way back. If we are lucky, we might get to see the bioluminescence in the ocean after dark!
