Ecalada Island, Bormeleo Isle.
And with Ecalada, it's even better!
Welcome to the small island Paradise!
Ecalada Island; Small Island Paradise.
Welcome! This is Ecalada Is. What is show in the Main Island Area.
Small and easy to get around.
It should be IMPOSSIBLE to get lost!
This is the North Ecaladan, Rock Island. It has a monument on the summit of the steep island and even
features a mini beach. It is located North of the island, obviously.
The residents of Ecalada are very active farmers. Mainly cultivating bannana, coconut, peppers, potatoes, tomatoes and
tobbaco, the islanders are often occupied with there jobs.
Most people on the east live in island shanties and wooden houses, on the west, well scroll down
and you'll see, eventually...
This is a cornfield. Down is the rice paddy, go down this picture is the main town center.
Up is the Power Station and the island fishing village.
Here is the Main power station, providing the island of electrical needs.
One of the few things found to be modern in the island.
Here is the east island fishers homes. Some are also beach side housing.
This village sits right in the Airport section.
Tourist transportation is often run round the clock for night 'n' day tour and a bus schedule for it
to run around town, picking up and dropping off residents and tourists.
This also shows the beachside resort, often a great accomidation, before
you see the rest of the island and travel to Revilliato and Versailles.
Another major cultivation. Rice! The next best thing to eat on the island is grown all round.
This is one of the few rice paddy's on Ecalada.
This happens to be my favorite area. Mangrove beach! Not the best name, but it's better than it sounds though.
Am I right, better than it sounds. The time I took this photo was when the Airport was in construction.
The Highest point of the island is only about 6 meters above sea level. The rest is low lying, so it
could be easily consumed by flooding. But this area is really about the historical bell tower
which is still often rung today. On top near the rock field.
This is the main road, leading to the west side of the island. We're getting
very close to the west.
Here is just a close up image of the old bell tower.
Another major tourist attraction. The old crashed cargo boat. It crashed 15 years ago, when the computers
malfunctioned and the steering mechanism was jammed. Ended up crashing
on the coast, and worse still, the island didn't have a light house.
The Bormeleo Council is funding for light house and hopes to build in the future.
The Island is full of rocks. Just happens to be so. Rice is growing! YAY!
The Landing Strip, momentarily the only way out. And the Fishing Village and resort. Taxis make
there daily runs uninteruppted.
The West side of the island features concrete and brick homes, stronger housing then the east.
Just a few dozen people live here. Just for the better of there small festivals.
Here is a full View of the Western Cape. The town heralds a small mueseum, a catherdral, housing,
business and a Caltex gas station. [ the only one on the island ]
More rice being grown. The main road and a few local island businesses. For some reason
there is so much to see in a small area. Or I think I'm repeating them waaayy to much!
O well, I'm just suprised!! And the Town Water supply.
EEEEE!!! So many angles, for some reason, each is better than the next!
Close up on the West Cape Village. The church, Town Hall, fire station and the housing and
And at the end of the day, people flock home and rest, awaiting the next day. Go to the beach, farm, work
museum, resort, airport, church, school, police, fishing. It's all here in this small Island.
And at sunrise, It's time to start again. Farming, Flying, Fishing, exploring, sight seeing.......
