quote:Yes, i visited Corfu once in a high school trip. One of the best islands in Greece, great beaches and green!! (plenty of trees)unfortunately it was spring and additionaly the teachers were too scared to leave us play by the sea. For a strange reason i feel discomfort even to the thought of being in an island. I want to be able to set off for a trip even in the middle of the night not having to worry about winds,ships or bad weather. The beach(egremnoi) in the above link is located in the island of lefkas or lefkada which is accesable by a small bridge. Perfect solution for me.

Sadly I see these same eggs being sold in the local market I visited later. It is a protected species. A good reason why I don't go into the water at this beach. It sort of drops off about 50m out. Easier for the turtles to come ashore, drowns unsuspecting tourists easily to be fish food. Most of the turtles now lay their eggs on Redang or the Perhentian islands. Especially the Perhentian islands. There is this section with lots of green algae growing on the rocks. When there is algae, there will be turtles having a buffet. You don't even need to dive to see them. A snorkel set is all you need. BTW, if you want to see much better pictures of this beach with the cave, this guy has been there last year and his Flickr photoset has really captured the essence of the place compared to my little prosumer digicam. http://www.flickr.com/photos/zairi/sets/72057594135122338/ You can really see in one picture how the cave is really like in high tide.
