Here you can enjoy superb snorkelling just a stroll away from the lodge; the clear warm waters of the Indian Ocean play host to over 1,250 species of fish. The scuba diving is wonderful, with the lodge launching its boat straight from the beach and instructors on hand to teach beginners.
The lodge offers an Ocean Safari, taking guests out in their own boat to see shoals of game fish, schools of bottlenose dolphins and, during the summer, whale sharks and turtles. In the winter, humpback whales are often spotted. Speak to your specialist consultant for more details.
