Welcome to Blanchisseuse where we will be parking our vehicles a little way beyond the Spring Bridge by some townhouses that will ensure safe parking.
We enjoy a nice walk all along dirt terrain for about 45 minutes to 1 hour tops until we eventually reach to a trail that very little folks know about. Once we reach to that trail, it is all downhill from here. We come at a diversion where the downhill is quite steep and so, a rope will be attached between trees to ensure of your safety as you carefully trod downhill straight on the seashore.
The beach is a hidden gem of a beach that is not known whatsoever hence for its name "Shangri-La" meaning "A remote, beautiful imaginary place where life approaches perfection"
Now folks, I will take the opportunity in notifying you all about this beach that is unknown by 98% of the population. I ask of you all to really take this opportunity and embrace this beach please. Enjoy what is on offer.
When we eventually depart Shangri-La Bay, we head back how we came until we reach at our destined turn off at another beach where our fresh and hot fish lunch awaits us......yes, grilled fish of the day, together with fresh salad, potato salad and rice will be served and another great beach to also enjoy before we finally make our way back at our parked vehicles.
