Beachside at Aharen
2021.11.25


There was limited time but things were not rushed. We were limited because of the ferry’s departure time around four o’ clock so we had to have fun on Tokashiki Island before we had to head back to the mainland. As was written in my last blog, there is lots to do on the island but owing to our lack of transportation, we had contented ourselves to enjoy all our time at Aharen Beach. 





Our party consisted of six people and we were not worried about losing sight of anyone so we went our separate ways after we had collectively decided what our beach day agenda would be.  Every sports shop was offering the same products that were relatively the same prices so choosing a vendor was not difficult. My housemates wanted to do some water activities but because we were told the condition of the sea water was poor for snorkelling we decided not to rent snorkelling masks or fins. It would have been a waste of money and time. We all had to rent life jackets as it was mandatory when entering the beach so we got those and rented a beach umbrella. We did not do so at the time but a few hours later, after watching groups of friends having tons of fun with giant floating doughnuts (tyres), one of our group members rushed off to grab one. As expected, we had immense enjoyment clambering onto, into and under the doughnut. 





We paid the fees which were a packaged deal and walked along the beach together to choose a spot among the sunbathers. We settled in under two broad umbrellas and I was amazed at the stark difference in temperature under the brollies. It was cool and the breeze was refreshing. Stepping out from under its protection ten minutes later felt like my skin was that of a pig’s that was being roasted at a lu’au (which is a traditional Hawaiian party or feast that is usually accompanied by entertainment). 





I was hungry so my friend and I made our way through the tiny marine village looking for some local food that we could enjoy before cooling down in the blue ocean for the rest of the day. We left the others behind either sitting under the shade of the umbrella or getting changed into their swimwear so they could dive into the tropical looking water.
