Basata contains s 18 Hut and

<p>Basata contains s 18 Hut and 9 Chalets.&nbsp;</p>

<p>Huts have no electricity or bathrooms, while chalets have both. There is a main area that contains the kitchen, library and a big sitting area. On both ends of Basata there is a big bathroom &amp; showers area, ladies and men are separate, very clean and in good condition.&nbsp;</p>

<p>Basata Rules are strict and straight forward and they do apply It and don&rsquo;t welcome anyone who is not following the rules (no drugs, no nudity, no fishing or diving, no over romance in public, no loud music). The rules are intended to keep Basata a favored destination for those who love peace and simplicity.&nbsp;</p>

<p>What to bring in addition to usual things: candles, your food as possible, flash light, insect repellent, a book, a power bank as electricity not stable,</p>

<p>Dinner is one day fish and another vegetarian. Basata don&rsquo;t serve meet or chicken as they come from Cairo, and this is not matching the owner health standards. &nbsp;The food is excellent. &nbsp;I recommend the fish day</p>

<p>It&rsquo;s a beautiful friendly environment. You will do you own food and serve yourself. In the early morning they bake feta cheese bread and small pizza, and the dinner (if booked) is served at 7. Otherwise, you are on your own.</p>

<p>The beach was chosen by the guardian as of the best 10 beaches worldwide in 2005. It&rsquo;s a while sandy beautiful beach. With a rich snorkeling are very nearby. You can rent your snorkeling gears from there, but advisable to bring it with you as not all sizes are available. &nbsp;</p>
