Nearby Things to Do

The majority of recreational facilities described below are included in the room rate for this resort (scroll up to the All-Inclusive details section for more information).

Narrow stone paths lead through the resort's 8,094 sq m (2 acres) of jungle-like grounds abloom with tropical flowers. Other stone paths lead down cliff faces toward the sea, where guests climb down ladders into the Caribbean Sea or leap into the turquoise-and-emerald water from two points, one approximately 7.5m (26 ft) high and the other 6m (20 ft).

Once in the water, guests can explore two grotto-like caves containing marine fossils. (Dry-land paths/staircases also lead into the caves.) One cave ends in a blowhole within the resort's grounds. At the top of the blowhole is a leap-off platform approximately 4.5m (15 ft) above the water. The blowhole is lighted at night, and there's a concrete bench beside the blowhole.

Seven areas—three on cliff-face platforms above the water—furnished with cushioned lounge chairs and umbrellas provide semi-private sunbathing. Guests claim these areas on a first-come, first-served basis. One area lies between a 6-m (20-ft) oval saltwater pool and a four-person spa tub on a clifftop platform.

The resort supplies snorkeling gear for use among the coral formations along the cliffs as well as floats and kayaks, which staff members carry down the cliffs on request. Bicycles are also available for exploring the West End.

Independent operators charge for motorized water sports like jet skiing, parasailing, and banana boating along Seven Mile Beach, which consists of the principal beach-resort areas of Long Bay and Bloody Bay.
