And so another week passes in paradise and we have been delighted to welcome both new and old guests. Some returned to Sand Island - their home-from-home – for the umpteenth time, whilst new faces also arrived – perhaps to see what all the fuss is about.
This week will no doubt be an interesting one; Kenya went to the polls on Tuesday the 8th of August. Everyone is feeling anxious about the results and how they will be accepted by both leaders and supporters.
But we remain here, cradled in this crook of beach, sheltered from polls and politics – and pretty much anything else you want to escape from. As the majesty of the full moon rises over the reef and turns the tide, we sip a cold Tusker and enjoy fresh octopus salad, whilst listening to bush babies squeal as the waves pound the shore in celebration of another new moon. The beach below sits like an active volcano – ready to erupt with new hatchlings at any moment.
Once the dust has settled after the election, and we get back to “business as usual” at SIB, we will offer some fantastic low season rates in September. Also, if you missed out on your coast trip this August, be sure to enjoy a break on our beach over the October half-term.
Stay safe during these unpredictable times, let’s pray that calm and integrity prevail.
