Summer Fun 'On and In' the Water!

By Blue Sky Luxury on Thursday, May 26, 2016

If you're feeling energetic and want to get out on the water and try something new, you're still in the right place. We’ve compiled a list of activities that our guests request time and time again, as well as those which are relatively new on the island but are still very much guaranteed to give you that adrenaline rush.

First things first: a catamaran cruise is a must-do. Most local operators offer day packages where you and the family will go snorkelling around stunning shipwrecks and try to outswim (probably unsuccessfully) the many turtles and fish that you'll see during the tour. Guests tout this time and time again as a truly unforgettable experience- just be sure not to have too much rum punch so you actually remember it…

For the more intrepid amongst us, you can visit virtually any beach on the South or West Coast to get involved in some watersport and scuba diving action. We recommend that you have your Go-Pro in tow whilst out...whether you end up above or below water, you will definitely want to relive some of these memories at some point in the future. 

Flyboarding is another activity that has taken off (excuse the pun!) with the real thrillseekers in recent years and once you get the hang of it, you'll be the envy of your friends back home when they see the videos. And even if you don't get the hang of it, you can always take some photos during the 0.2 seconds that you are airborne...we're sure that they'll still be jealous!

And, of course, fishing and surfing are two things for which our little gem remains very well-known; one need only look at the international talent that flocks here annually for various tournaments to realise how prime the conditions are.

Lastly, if you fancy something more relaxing and slightly off the beaten track, there is Stand Up Paddling (SUP) Yoga. It might sound impossible, but trust us: the water is as calm as can be...you'll be hitting the Warrior pose in no time, just like if you were in your studio back home. A little insider tip from Jodi, part of the Blue Sky team: if you plan your visit just right, you’ll be around for their Full Moon sessions- we cannot recommend this enough.

So if we have piqued your interest, rest assured that this is just a small fraction of all the fun, outdoor things to do on the island. Do not hesitate Do not hesitate to give the Concierge a call and ask for more information on anything we’ve mentioned here, or anything that we haven’t if you’re curious. We're more than happy to ensure that you make the most of your stay with us. 

Up next in our series is the Relaxer Holiday – for those of you who’ve come primarily for some well-deserved R&R.
