The facilities include water sports centre, gymnasium, swimming pools, tennis court, heated spa, 2 bars, open air restaurant and a luxury 32 foot catamaran.  In your own leisure time, dive on The Reef, snorkel, paddle on a ski, fish, paddle a canoe or motor to a secluded spot in one of the motorized dinghies and take a gourmet picnic hamper.  If things get boring, you can always take a fishing line.   If this isn’t of interest, charter the seaplane, take in game fishing or a guided walk around the island or enjoy a leisurely sunset cruise.  There is something for everyone.
