Recovering from the 2016 earthquake
Posted 27-Mar-2017 on Hotels
The area had suffered an earthquake about 5 months before our visit and the main road was still closed. This meant a long detour and as such the town and area were relatively quiet. Due to the seabed being raised about 2 metres some of the waterborne activities were limited numbers as the larger whale watch and dolphin encounter vessels can no longer dock. Smaller vessels are being used so the trips are still on but booking is essential to avoid disappointment. It was a fascinating and beautiful area and one that I would have liked to stay longer.
