Welcome to Chatham Village, the beginning of a really great beach walk that starts smack on the beach known as "Erin Bay". Here is great bathing in the warm and very calm waters to get you started if you like. Of course the terrain all along is very flat and a nice and easy 9.25 miles of beach walking is our distance for the day. With easy walking all along, our time should take us between 4 hours to 4 hours 30 minutes to complete.
As we complete our journey, our waiting maxi taxi will meet us in the outskirts of the main Cedros Village and of course, we will make a brief stop off at the well known "Galfa Mud Volcano" that is situated around a small Hindu Temple that is always locked, but once we pay a small contribution, the keeper of the Temple will afford us the opportunity in taking pictures of the mud volcano cone around the Temple.
From Galfa, we journey back to Chatham by our waiting vehicles and enjoy a bit of cold refreshments before retiring to our respective destination.
