The boardwalk spans about 300 feet and passes through the Lecture Theatre continuing 350ft through the mangroves. Our boardwalk is another route to our private beach and an option for guests that do not wish to kayak. You will experience the mangroves from an entirely different vantage point (up close and personal indeed) on the boardwalk as you take a stroll amidst the prop roots and towering branches. Our lagoon is one of the most unique of its kind amongst the islands and is the home to five watercourse and four mangroves tunnels. It is also home to the white and black mullet and the ever popular tarpon. The lagoon tour lasts about 20 minutes and is as memorable as it is relaxing. After doing the kayaking or boardwalk, you have the option to hike up to Goat Head Hill. Getting to Goat Head Hill, requires you to complete the kayaking through the lagoon or you may walk across the boardwalk. The hike is about 20 minutes long and a panoramic view of our neighboring island as well as a fabulous view of the south side of the island. It is an excellent spot for taking photographs. You are encouraged to wear suitable shoes for this activity. The breath-taking view awaits you!
