Built across a seven-acre cay, this resort is one of the most charming places in the Bay Islands. Delightful pastel accents turn up everywhere—on tree trunks, picnic tables, spacious cottages, and even the birdcages. Coral-lined paths cut across the well-manicured campus, and a walkway ringing the cay leads out to a private lean-to with hammocks. The island's best bar 'n' grill offers an appetizing menu of fresh seafood and fried chicken. For the ultimate in decadence,
sip an afternoon cocktail from the swim-up tables facing the hazy-blue mountains on the mainland. The yacht club has a few boats for deep-sea fishing, plus dive and snorkel equipment at the ready. The owner, Graham Thompson, is always around to help out.
