Rent some snorkel gear from the local diving company and enjoy the crystal clear water's diverse marine life and colorful coral reef. Those feeling a little more adventurous can rent one of the kayaks, windsurfers, and sailboats. Don't fret if you're not staying on the island's tranquil resort, as the restaurant and beach are open for public use.

  • Love it here. Shortly after the hurricanes they were hosting travelers. Not everything was functional ( bar, rest., etc.) but it was very liveable. Short ferry ride to the board walk makes the entire town accessible. Not fancy but very comfortable.
