There is no A/C but you don't need it because of the cool ocean breeze.

Jakes is a local bar/resturaunt/hotel in the heart of treasure beach. it is set on the beach. The food is good but not excellent. You definitley go for the atmosphere and the sunset as you can see from the picture. The food served is local fare with dishes such as pumpkin soup, curried goat (watch for the bones!) and seafood dishes.

Rebecca of treasure tours will arrange and take you on the tour. It was really spectacular. Rebecca is a great guide and will stop at local vendors along the way to let you purchase local honey and crafts. She is also very good about explaining and pointing out highlights along the way

Very isolated beaches. There are very few tourists or locals using the beaches. This is primarily a fishing village and therefore the beaches are not used a lot for swimming. The ocean can be somewhat rough at times but usually very safe for swimming.

This is an out of the way fishing village. It is very small and there is not a lot to do except the few nature tours you can take. This is the perfect place to go to rest and relax. It is vey inexpensive to rent a house on the beach. most of the houses come with cooks and staff that prepare the meals and pamper you. If you are looking for an out of the way place to rest and relax and enjoy the sun this is the place for you.
