Diving is the focus at this small resort, but folks who want to simply swim, snorkel, or relax can also feel right at home. The rooms are comfortable, with attractive wood furniture, tile floors, and lovely sea views. Unless you go on a diving excursion, once you're here, you're here to enjoy the camaraderie of your fellow guests and the yachties who moor just off the beach. The resort provides a complimentary ferry from Road Harbour Marina in Road Town, but it operates
on a limited schedule; check with the reort about alternate water taxi arrangements before you make your travel plans. The restaurant ($$–$$$) serves up delightful food for lunch and dinner, and some dishes include items grown right on the property. There's also an emphasis on sustainable tourism. Check their website for information on their underwater cameras which are providing scientific information on sea grasses to classrooms around the world. The resort also produces about 75% of its power with solar panels on the restaurant roof. But leave your electric hair dryers and high voltage items at home—the system can't handle them. The resort has Wi-Fi in public areas and guest rooms.
