This is a beautiful sheltered bay for a very protected, calm and stable night sleep.

Once at the overnight anchorage there is plenty of time to enjoy a swim in the warm, sun-drenched tropical ocean. As the day moves through to night it is time to enjoy a beautiful steamed fish supper and relax with a few evening drinks on the gorgeous wooden decks.

The evening consists of relaxation, chat, games and on most trips Dolphins come to hunt and play under the Horizon’s fish spotlight.
