Enjoy a divine culinary experience before taking in the serenity of the sun setting over the Bay.

See the magnificent limestone islets and outcrops lined-up across the emerald sea. Explore a remote fishing village to experience the daily lives of the locals. Kayak unspoiled lagoons, sliding past deserted sandy white  beaches and awesome limestone karst formations. The 3 day/2 night escape is ideal for keen novice or experienced kayakers and for those who enjoy swimming and communing with nature.
