I booked two days at Manta Lodge which is located on Home Beach next to Adder Rock . This was a YHA but now focuses on Dive Lessons and is a popular venue for backpackers and tourists wanting to get a diving certification. There are dorms and shared accommodation, a well serviced kitchen and plenty of relaxing areas….a lounge, games room, a book exchange and lots of friendly people wandering around if you want company. The best part is the beach and that is where I went the moment I arrived.
Next to Manta Lodge is a small general store and food bar and you can get real good hamburgers there cooked by the Indian shop owner and his family. They also stock bait for fishing and a selection of things that you may need. I ate my meals there for convenience. There are major works happening there right now as soon there will be petrol pumps and petrol. That will be wonderful as the only petrol available now is at Amity Point
I also went to Point Lookout and did the Gorge Walk. The bus comes hourly so make sure you do not miss the bus like I did, as then you have to wait another hour for the next one.
