THREE DAYS OF LIVING ON AN ISLAND PARADISE
Three days to relax or go crazy with amazing activities from the lodge. The lodges prefer to take booking direct for the various tours it organises, but the good news is that none of them are very expensive, with whale watching tours around 70USD per person. It is also free to snorkel from their private beach and the experience with the Green Turtles is just mesmerising. They also offer the whale watching tours for Humpbacks and Whale Sharks and the trip out to Turtle Island for the protected marine park. Walk around the island and you have the chance to see Lemurs and interesting bird life.
