Ochheuteal Beach is very long, and has lots of restaurants with thatched roofs along it. It’s a lazy place to spend a couple days, except for the touts offering crawdads, bracelets or massages.
One day, we took a snorkeling trip on a small boat, to several nearby islands. We stopped for a grilled fish lunch on one island, and went snorkeling on a couple others. There are black urchins with 1-1.5 foot spines, and glowing blue eyes, yard-long anemone-looking things with faded pink tentacles, and a phosphorescent green ectoplasm thing that sits on coral. The water isn’t incredibly clear, but it was fun to see the critters.
We saw some monks taking a beach stroll on the way back.
Cute kids came to greet our boat as we returned — returning boats being the day’s big event.
