My Birthday Celebration at Mambo Beach

Luckily the lockdown was lifted just in time to celebrate year 45 on the beach! Now was the difficult decision to choose which one – yes I know this problem won’t gain sympathy from anyone. The family and I settled on Mambo beach. While we have been on this beach for shopping, dinner, and happy

Scampi’s Restaurant On the Water

Location, Location, Location Let’s be real, even if the food wasn’t great, Scampi’s delivers stunning ambiance! This picturesque restaurant is in Punda, but away from the hustle of “city life”.
