Excitement and adventure is lurking behind every corner as there is never a dull moment on this charming haven of an island.

For those with a more mild approach to adventure, there is a multitude of wondrous things to do that do not require jumping out of a perfectly well to do airplane. Go hiking through the lush tropical landscape or go mountain climbing through the rugged and challenging slopes. Perhaps you may enjoy some water activities such as a relaxing day spent fishing and snorkelling. Or maybe you would like to turn it up a bit and do some deep sea diving around the beautiful and colourful reef that surrounds the island. Enjoy the warmth of the sun and the tropical waters as you are sure to encounter some very exotic and pulchritudinous species of aquatic life.
If you happen to be in a more balmy and laid back mood, then take a casual stroll on one of the many lovely nature trails. The brilliant tropical setting is a fantastic spot for great pictures and videos. For a truly awesome experience, check out the Chamarel Waterfall. Located in the southern part of the island, the waterfall drops over one hundred meters with an amazing green forestry backdrop that will literally take your breath away.
