We are proud of our very active library / book exchange. Books are available in a range of languages. We also have a range of travel guides available.

The snorkelling right in front of the resort is excellent. For your convenience we have provided a pontoon located about 30 meters from the beach. The pontoon is great for a rest whilst snorkelling but can also be used for sun bathing and relaxing.
We have also provided a rope between the beach and the pontoon so that the less experienced swimmer can also enjoy snorkelling while being supported by the rope. Life jackets are always recommended for the less experienced swimmers and kids. These are available for rent at the resort.
