A peaceful ,relaxing and very private boutique resort, where we very much felt that we were the only people lucky enough to enjoy this place. At low tide you can walk along miles of beach, and when it rained we saw the unique sight of a complete rainbow from end to end.
In January it was rather too hot to use the free bicycles, but if you do, it is just a short ride into the nearby "town." Much better to take out a kayak and explore the lagoon.
Breakfast is complimentary but there is no restaurant, however we discovered Sonya's organic farm just steps away, which is open Mon,Wed, and Fri. She makes the most interesting food…try the breadfruit lasagne.
