An Island Visited By Few

Population of this small island is 99, not including the monkey’s, crocodiles, fruit bats, coconut crabs and blue coral. The ghosts of WWII linger, with shipwrecks, and overgrown vegetation. The route to Anguar is via boat. We were fortunate to be able to take a small speed boat, which should have taken an hour and a half, however the seas were rough, with swells of eight to ten feet, taking us a harrowing three hours, then finally racing over the waves to catch the right swells to slide into an alcove. There are no restaurants, hotels or large grocery stores, and very few cars, however, the people who live on the island are friendly, loving and caring, and willing to share the bounty that the sea has to offer.
