Travel fantasy: Rock Restaurant

Wow, how's this for a travel fantasy: The Rock Restaurant is an amazing seafood shack perched on a rock in the Indian Ocean. Depending on the tide, you either walk, swim or row a boat to it!

Who's game?

P.S. More dream vacations...

I'm game! But did you see the stories about the shark attacks in the Seychelles?! Awful.

Wow what a place... looks like something right out of a fairy tale!!
The shark attacks have been all over the news in the UK, really really sad, but I'd still love to visit the Indian Ocean one day...

There's something absolutely irresistable about the indic ocean!!! It's just magical... Every single person should have the oportunity to go/see/swim there once in their lifetime

Reminds me of Tanah Lot, on Bali!

(Same goes for getting there - all depends on the tide!)

Fabiana ~ Ciao Newport Beach said...

I would HAVE to go during high tide!

The Jones said...

Mmmmm, I'm all up for it! I just love good food and the ocean is my favourite place to be. So let's make a date!

When I was in Bocas del Toro, Panama, a couple of years ago, we ate at a place run by two fisherman.

You call them in the morning, they go out and catch your dinner (lobster or fish are your two options!) then that evening they pick you up on their boat and take you to their own private island where they prepare the day's catch! So awesome.

anhesty said...

I have been to Zanzibar!! But not this resturant - an excuse to go back!

As for the shark attacks, we were on honeymoon in Seychelles last October and swam at that spot which is so stunning. I feel so sad for that couple. awful!

I would love to have seafood here. But I would walk or take a boat. I am a bit squeamish about the ocean.

Caroline said...

Jaime Lee said...

Why does it remind me of Harry Potter?

Stephanie @ Blawsom said...

Holy crap! What about the people that work there? Must they swim to work? And the food! How to they ship bucket loads of food to the restaurant? What about electricity? As a customer... I'm intrigued and would totally give this a go. As an owner... this sounds like a major pain in the butt!

Sunshine said...

OMG! I think I will pass.

How beautifully unique.

Erin said...

I've been to Zanzibar (while I was a Peace Corps volunteer in Kenya) but I did not get to experience this... amazing! The tide in Zanzibar was insane! During low tide you could walk for hours and never get to more than 4in of water!

Sage Crown Parker said...

love the photos, you know me, just can't get enough of the island life:)

Kimia Kline said...

oh wow. i have cousins in tanzania....should ask them if theyve ever been to this place.

That's in Zanzibar! I went to Zanzibar for a week last fall. Didn't know about this great little place then or I totally would have gone. Great post!

safaribarbie said...

Wow! Just came back from a beautiful holiday in Zanzibar a few weeks ago, and wish I'd known about this restaurant before...what a fantastic location!

That is absolutely amazing!!!

Oh it's just stunning! Let's go now!!

Sally Cage said...

My mum and I went to Zanzibar (where this amazing Rock restaurant is) when I was 17 while we were backpacking through Africa...and my mum met her future husband on Zanzibar! My mum, step-dad, and little brother now take turns living in Brisbane & Zanzibar...

I am from Australia which is heavenly and has the most amazing beaches in the world, BUT Zanzibar is definitely heaven on Earth! Not just spectacular natural beauty, but the architecture & ruins & beautiful friendly people and the amazing culture and history! It is a photographer's dream. If you visit, be sure to head up to the North-West tip of the island to a place called Kendwa Rocks (my step-dad's home and it is HEAVEN).

You MUST go there!
