Several handmade cottages are dispersed in a wild garden along Wasini's coast line. Special care has been taken to leave the environment as untouched as possible and the bush stretches right into the rocky More compound situated beyond the outskirts of the main village. Each cottage has sea view, a 2 x 2 m (6" x 6") double bed + single bed, a sitting/writing area, a bucket shower/eco-toilet, and a large roofed terrace including cooking area for self-caterers (fireplace & charcoal cooker. There is an additional building with showers (fresh water), and flush toilets (salt water). On request, additional beds are set up on a tree-top roof terrace. Blue Monkey Beach Cottages have a private sand beach on the cliff and own wooden jetty. Sustainable tourism is promoted and assistance is provided for bookings of excursions, boat tours and various activities organized by members of the local community. Less
