Later we decided to locate the beautiful beach.In the scorching heat we followed the path to the gardens .To our amazement the path winded through beautifully kept gardens and then stopped abruptly at the top of a flight of steps, sporting an arrow pointing to the beach…..Umm this is going to be hard work, we had the most awesome views of the ocean but to get to the beach we had to descend a long flight of steps.
We began the descent,huffing and puffing we finally reached the bottom to be met with the most beautiful golden white sands and the bluest ocean we had ever seen.The climb down was most certainly well worth the effort.
Having spent almost two hours on the beach it was time for well earned icecreams and then the long climb back up to the hotel.Feeling like mountaineers we began our ascend, huffing and huffing once again we climbed thesteps .1,2 ,3…………….. and finally to the last step; number 134!!! My innermost thoughts were “Oh my god, I am going to have to do this everyday!!!”I guess the consolation was that the views were so spectacular the climb was well worth it.
Soon this twice daily trip to the beach became a steady routine, progressively we got faster and better at tackling the steps and I am sure it certainly helped us to work off the vast number of calories we were consuming daily. .
