The Oa is a rocky region in the south west of #Islay and is almost an island itself. There is the American Monument which was erected to commemorate the loss of two ships in 1918 and the area is also an RSPB Nature Reserve, designated as a Special Protection Area for the protection of the chough. You can even see Ireland on a clear day!
The last 3 days of our trip were spent in Praslin island at the beautiful resort of La Domains De La Reserve. The unique part of staying there was that we got a lovely suite facing the Curiuse Island Marine Reserve. One could wake up in the morning, walk to the waters right below our room and snorkel among the various schools of fish. Days were spent enjoying the peace and calm of clear blue skies reflected on the waves. We also enjoyed the delicious food served at the restaurant, sitting by the waters with live bands playing music in the background at night.The resort also boasts of it's own tortoises around a huge swimming pool.Overall, the resort offers a variety of experiences to soak up the beauty of Praslin Island.
