beachfront description

Boat trips can be arranged for visiting nearby beaches or fishing. For those who prefer it, an infinity pool provides cool relaxation with its soothing waterfall. We pride ourselves on our friendly personal service and tranquil relaxing surroundings.

A coral reef extends about 100 yards from the shore, an ideal place for both young and old to explore the wonders of nature, particularly at low tide. The sea is crystal clear, ideal for snorkelling. A short walk along the beach and the reef disappears giving way to open sea ideal for swimming.
