FUN THINGS TO DO
Look for our salt water crocodiles in the lagoon. Honest! Their
existence has been assured by many guests and staff; each as respectable as
the Medellin Cartel.
Walk the beaches - Careful, Prudes, it's sometimes clothing-optional on the southwest side.
Try one of our sea kayaks. There are two-seaters and single-seat
performance models. It is not recommended that you circumnavigate the island
- in fact, it is expressly forbidden - but it should take you about two and
a half hours to do so. A better trip is around Sandbore Cay or into the
inland lagoon. It's a good idea to let someone know when and where you plan
to kayak in case you get stuck up the creek without a paddle.
Just Stop in at our giftshop and get your T-shirts and other gift items to bring back for your loved ones .
Investigate one of our hammocks. They work if you don't, and even if you do, they will be waiting...
If seventeen dives aren't enough for you, try swimming off the beach. We recommend you stay out of the turtle-grass though, some people are allergic to it. A good spot is off the easternmost point of the island. There's a spit of sandy bottom that goes out several hundred feet towards Sandbore Cay. Another good spot is off the restaurant dock.
Soak up some sun - the perfect cure for rum-punch-flu.
We have a small boat for fishing and a damn good fishing guide
named Poppy. Our equipment is pretty good and the cost of a boat and guide
Although we won't eat them, many guests have tried to outwit our famous Lighthouse Reef bonefish. They say that unless you earned a Purple Heart in the Battle of the Sexes you can't imagine an experience like bonefishing. Our unofficial record for the resort was set by a retired Kansas accountant when she caught a 12-pounder.
There is a fairly good path through the jungle from just north of the western end of the runway that leads past the dead lagoon to the shore near the point. If you're an experienced nature-watcher you'll see many different kinds of birds and iguanas (locally called Wish Willies) and all sorts of strange minor wildlife. If you're a typical American tourist you'll see sand spurs, stickers and mosquitoes (if the breeze drops).
There have been times when some of the staff rebel from the working schedule to take on a "friendly" volleyball challenge. Richard's a wimp at the net.
Visit the commercial dock at night. The light out there attracts bugs that attract small fish that attract barracudas and rays. You might also find it attracted one of our staff who's fishing for your lunch the next day.
If you're a runner or jogger please be careful on the airstrip. We don't think you'll run into an airplane (except on Saturday morning, maybe) but the rough texture of the airstrip can cause poor footing and twisted ankles.
There are many books (mostly paperback) available at the restaurant. Feel free to borrow one and to donate to the library.
Unless your emotional development only progressed to the denial stage, you will enjoy a trip to Sandbore Cay on Friday afternoon for a pleasant visit with Mr. Pete, Mr. Phillip and whatever relatives and hangers-on happen to be there. You can climb the lighthouse (please be careful) and Mr. Pete explains how he extracts oil from the ever-present coconuts and might even be convinced to sell you a gin bottle full of coconut oil.
