Never I experienced the water so bad for so long. Today I swam at Angol (White Beach). Still (since many weeks now), the visibility is bad. There is not only the algeas that bake in the sun, rot at both ends of White Beach and spread that rotten stinch like fouling gabbage. The water is still so green and unpleasant even 150 meters of coast, where I usually swim. And after swimming I felt ichy in my trunks and around my neck. I developed lots of nasty wheals. This was my worst experience at the White Beach so far.
First I swam from Asya resort towards Sundowner resort. But as the water got worse (greener) I tried the other direction towards the mainland. But then, soon the stinch there got so bad that I turned back.
Usually there are many boats with tourists in this area, bringing them here for snorkeling. Today there was not a single one! Because of the ugly smell of cours!
The water temperature was not too warm. Around 22 degrees with the tendency to get warmer now. Air 33 degrees.
