Footage from a hidden gem 1200 miles off the coast.
It's filled with hindu relics, mystical jungles, bustling Sunday markets, white sand beaches, and smiling people.
I was on the island for five days, camping on beaches, and exploring each its vast landscape.
Mountains, oceans, reefs, and jungles, truly a magical and untouched place.
One of my favorite moments came during a hike, when I was deep inside a field of sugar cane. I must have wandered off the unmarked path, as all of a sudden I could tell I was no longer on trial. Within moments I heard a rustling from the bushes. I was startled and necroses at first, but seconds later a man popped out, smiling and excited to teach me how to taste the sugar stored in the plant.
A friendly island with great people. I will be back to this magical land.

<p>My name Is Oliver Lowe, and I'm an adventurer, wanderer, film-maker, and music enthusiast. I grew up in the rural wilderness of the great state of Maine, where I spent my days running around with a group of neighborhood bandits, filming everything from Civil War reenactments to ski trips. Since then, I've been on a constant hunt for new and exciting experiences, always with a camera in hand. My filmmaking has taken me to the top of Rocky Mountains, the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean, and almost everywhere in between.</p>
