There are no bugs. Weather is perfect and the water is glassy. The sweet scent of flowers and the lilting of birds are everywhere. When I go horseback riding on the beach in the late afternoon, the sun casts long shadows on the sand. Mussel shells on the shoreline catch the rays and gleam like diamonds. As the sun sets, the water color changes from turquoise to indigo. That is how Indigo Bay got its name.
Our thatched-roof villa has a private beach that faces the Indian Ocean. The bathroom is almost the size of my living room and has indoor and outdoor showers. How cool is it too take a shower and feel a soft Indian Ocean breeze?
Though Indigo Bay’s 44 rooms (30 beach chalets and 14 villas) are usually occupied, most of the time it seems there are only a few people here. But in the evening, you have to share the path to dinner with an assortment of skittering shells. Hermit crabs are everywhere.
Some people come for the diving or to relax at the spa. It is one of my favorite places to stare out at the water and do nothing.
