Carleva Bay sits on a quiet beach frequented only by local fishermen. Enjoy snorkeling, wading, aerobics, yoga and watching the sunset. Close to nature and cultural sites. Ambiance, outdoor space, and locals are phenomenal. Great for couples, families, corporate retreats and other large groups.

The Carleva Center for Global Understanding was founded in 2003 as a home base for Edu-Tourism, a voluntourism-based NGO.
