We found this little piece of paradise via Google maps when we were looking for an island to spend some nights. Looking back we should have stayed longer. It's just an half hour boattrip from Port Barton but you feel like you are on the end of the world. Island hopping tours were also available with pickup from Capsalay. Staff was amazing, food was great, even keeps in mind any dietary needs and or wishes. When you go for a walk the dogs keep you company along the way. Best place we have been in the Philippens!
Where should I start? Everything is A-okay! I accidentally met Gigi cos we were in the same van going to Port Barton. It was during the moment i was resigned to the fact that i cant do island camping cos the one i messaged said they were full. And here comes Gigi tellinger her place offers that! Heaven sent! I booked staying in a tent for 2 nights but i was upgraded to a beach hut where her family actually stays when they are there. Can't complain. Camping turned glamping. 😆 She toured me around the island and telling me about their efforts in making the place eco-friendly. They collect water from rain and use it eventually. The stack up pet bottles and put cement over it and make as steps or benches. To get a hot shower, you have a solar bag that contains water. Hang it in…
The place is paradise, the beach is isolated... a great long beach for yourself, Gigi is great the best host ever! A great cook as well. We loved our 2 days stay and we'll cime back for sure, we are very grateful to Gigi for the advise, help, great food and conversation!
We stayed there for 2 days .. and that was definitely too short ! Great place, far away from everything (but still easy to reach as it is only 15’ boat from port Barton), simple but good comfort and more important, extra attention from owner Gigi to make our stay unforgettable. We really enjoyed snorkelling, island hopping, etc... and recommend it, not mentioning the « family » fires for new Chinese year... and the chocolate cake for my son’s birthday !!! I had hard time to convince my kids and husband to live on an island somehow lost for some days, but everyone wanted to extend the stay, a good sign definitely !
Many thanks to Gigi and all her team for the moment we spent at Capsalay Reef camp. This is a paradise on an island next to Port Barton where you can be out of the crowd. Food is awesome, and so many things to do in this place and around. There is everything you need to feel well. We appreciated that the camp is respectful of the nature, they literally leave with it. Definitely will come back if we can.
