The road from Port Glaud to Port Launay became narrower until it was only one car wide. I was only hoping we wouldn’t encounter any traffic going the other way.

After such a long day we couldn’t really decide where we were exactly. I knew I wanted to see Port Launay, but I wasn’t sure the beautiful bay on our left was in fact Port Launay. It looked amazing enough though.

At the end of the narrow road there was a closed gate with a guard. So we had to drive back. Half way, I parked our little rental car into some bushes and we climbed down to the rocky beach.

The water was incredibly turquoise blue and crystal clear. Obviously a great snorkeling area. Since Port Launay is also a marine national park I can only imagine how many colourful fishes there must be here.
