28 June 2011:

There was a surprisingly strong current in the passage, and I had to swim constantly against the current for control, especially around the corals in the shallows. There were huge schools of colourful fish being tossed around by the currents, but also some painful stingers. Coming back pretty tired, it was good to rest and dry off in a hammock on the beach. Looks like this resort has been here for a while - this rope around the tree has been engulfed.
