Since the 1970's we have fed our fish and watched them grow. There are NO sharks or harmful sea-life. Just beautiful sites under our waters.
At the beach area is a zero entry ramp and lagoon area it's about 3.5 -4 feet or just over a meter. You have to swim out fairly far to get to 10 feet/ 3 meters. Our waters are very safe however, Safety First! when you move past our estate perimeter and grounds. Life jackets must be worn when on Kayaks due to liability. Kayaks are included in your price for 1.5 hour usage per day of your stay per couple. Kindly text me before u depart from our beach so I can advise our other guests as to when kayaks will return. Thank u.
