The tropical sun can be unkind to those who are not accustomed to it and suntan lotion should be used whenever you are outside for any period of time. It is wise to limit exposure to 30 or 40 minutes a day for the first few days to condition your skin for a beautiful tan instead of a painful sunburn.

Sunset Cruises

Some sailing boats, power boats and catamarans offer special sunset cruises for an affordable price. Please ask us on time of booking or ask our Concierge Manager.
