Then walk down the steps to a secluded beach - go swimming, snorkeling or enjoy a stroll.. Have lunch, which can be delivered, and have a siesta in the hammock or sunbathe on the deck. Alternatively, go jungle trekking, mountain biking, mangrove touring. But make sure you return in time to watch the sun go down with a chilled glass of wine before cooking on your own BBQ or ordering some great local food, from one of the nearby restaurants.More

The chalet is perched on top of a small cliff with a drop of about 6-8 metres to the beach below. Although the chalet and decking is set back, there is no barrier. Therefore, f you have young children, you'll need to be happy that they will be safe and not go near the edge.
