This place is simply amazing. We based ourselves here to see Santo, Milenium Cave and Blue Holes. We would highly recommend a stay, Di and Skye go above and beyond to make you feel welcome. Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer!

Hi Susan, Our fringe reef in front of the resort is accessible on all tides, and snorkelling is just as good at either tide. There are few currents to worry about, but it can be affected by wind chop and swell. Many thanks
