"10AM - 1PM (very flexible)" Banda Island Local Custom Tip by Bonobo2005

Banda Island Local Customs: 5 reviews and 2 photos

  that's life
by Bonobo2005

After dessert it's normal to retire to the hammock or the sand.

There's a big choice of hammocks on different locations on the tranquil Island. Sometimes people opt for a lazy chair, just for a change.

An equally popular -guest- activity is to retire to the beach, with a choice of two nice stretches of sand.

On the way to the hammock or the beach you would usually grab your first beer and possibly choose a book from the bookswap.

Less common but possible is taking an old surfboard and paddle on the water. A little odd seems to use the canoe and explore the island a bit.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
