Lonely Planet review
The turn-off to Lelet Plateau is just after Malom. There's a village guesthouse further down at Dalom. A serious contender for the title of best place to stay on the east coast, it boasts a modernish ablution block (flush toilets, hooray!) and four tidy rooms (think decent mattresses and mosquito nets). We fell for the setting, right on a gorgeous beach by a turquoise stream. Surfers take note: this is a good surfing spot. Try not to turn up on Saturday (the Adventists' Sabbath).
Our independent authors have visited Guesthouse and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in East Coast.
