The staff drove us to the general store where we purchased refreshments and collected complimentary snorkelling gear. A few minutes later we were dropped off to the back beach, we picked up a...

Such an amazing place to stay with the family. Action packed with snorkeling galore, great fishing in calm waters, delicious food and beautiful sunsets. Relaxing on the beach with not a breath of wind and the water lapping at your feet. We will definitely be going back again!!
