Passing the salt ponds, you may glimpse the flamingos that seasonally forage in the briny water. Feel the powdery white sand between your toes and swim in the inviting turquoise waters of the island's most famous beach -- a beach chair and umbrella are provided. Taste a bit of the island as you complete your day with island spice cake and a bottle of cold water.
Shuttles are available to take you back to the ship before or after the time at the beach.
Wear your swimsuit under your clothing; bring a towel, reef-safe/biodegradable sunscreen, light clothing to act as a full cover-up for further protection from the sun, and a hat. Beach chairs and umbrellas are included for one hour. Swim at your own risk. A shuttle is available every 30 minutes to return you to the ship. Tour sequence may vary.
