Things To Do:
When the surf is cooking you can ride 4 to 6ft waves that rival the worlds best. If the easterly wind is pumping the kiteboarders are in their element. Fishing of course is an "all weather" especially when the shad are biting, and for divers the reef offers an abundance of crayfish!
Swimming pool and trampoline facility available.
Visit the nearby Crocodile Farm which offers not only crocodiles but a wide variety of birds and snakes. Cultural villages are also neary where you can browse amonst the locally made produce, or you can visit the weekend flea markets that offer a host of homemade and traditional crafts.
