Insider Tips

It's well worth to discover the island with its beautiful viewpoints and secluded beaches. The main roads are concrete but some of the roads down to the different beaches are still dirt roads. To get around you will need to rent a motorbike or take a taxi. Another option is to go around the island with a long tail boat for a day, making snorkeling and beach stops where your like, maybe have lunch in a small nice restaurant on the beach. Have an evening drink or dinner in one of the beach restaurants watching the sunset and fire shows. Why not take up the chef Ed to cook you a great dinner in the villa. You can go snorkeling in front of the villa on the coral reef with a big chance of spotting the harmless black tip reef sharks and turtles.


Eagle Pool Villa (2 - 8 persons + 2 children in extra beds) - is the largest and most spectacular of the 3 villas, occupying an exceptional position 35 meters above the sea on the edge of a cape with panoramic views over the ocean, the nearby beaches, the surrounding islands and the Marine Park. The exclusive villa is facing south and will treat you with both sunrises and sunsets. The villa consists of a main house with kitchen, dining and sitting areas, a small office and four double bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, all in separate buildings. Great for families, friends or couples who want to stay together but still wish to have their privacy. This is the perfect hideaway place for those seeking a relaxing luxury retreat. Breakfast is always included in Eagle Villa. The other two villas are: Gecco Pool Villa (2 - 8 persons + 1 child in extra bed) Turtle Pool Villa (2 - 6 persons + 1 child in extra bed)
