The island’s main town and chief fishing port on the central west coast is also home to the small airport. To the south of here is Long Beach, the most developed area of the island, where most of the hotels and resorts are located.
The town itself is not that exciting, though the filthy, bustling market is interesting. In contrast, the excellent night market is scrupulously clean and filled with its delicious food stalls. The old bridge in town is a good vantage point to photograph the island’s fishing fleet crammed into the narrow channel.
