  • Spent a year there in 1986-87 as part of RAF settlement. A more beautiful place you will never come across, it even rained that year and the whole Island turned green. Natural Lava caves, great fishing, amazing diving as you look over the island edge. A fantastic place to stay if the opportunity presents itself.
  • I spent 6 months there, in 1988. Best place on the earth. Refuelling Military Aircraft.
