Lazy afternoon and a picnic at Emerald Bay

We spent a whole afternoon relaxing and lazing on the secluded beach of Emerald Bay, which is located on the other side of the island.

This place is just breathtaking and the clear emerald waters just made us feel calm and at peace almost immediately!

The pristine white sandy beach just reminds me of paradise :)

There were lazy deck chairs on the beach, underneath the shady sea apple trees (that's the name of the trees, as told by the nature guide :)

The thoughtful folks actually prepared beach towels and even draped them over the deck chairs for the beach goers.

Our main activity for that afternoon was the tree planting ceremony

We enjoyed ourselves so much, and this was definitely a very meaningful and heart-warming experience:)

We were treated to a private picnic lunch by the beautiful beach of Emerald Bay

If you thought that the idea of having picnic lunch is to carry a basket and setting down on the sand, well, you are wrong.
This is no ordinary picnic as we picked the menu a day before, and we have a kind person who carried our basket to our selected spot by the beach.

He then proceeded to set up our table and food!

We took our time in enjoying our lunch, while admiring the beautiful sea view.

We were not in the mood of swimming or do anything but just to sit, relax and we talked about everything under the sun!
We talked about our wedding and shared our tales of joys and grimes with each other.

It was amazing how fast time flew past, and without us knowing it, we have spent more than 5 hours on the beach!
