“The Anchorage is found at the Sunset Resort. This is fine dining at it's best. The food on offer is rather scrumptious, the cocktails decadent and the service is fantastic. If you would like to do something special for a loved one then you can't go past The Anchorage. ”

Bike Shop
“This business is rather unique and provides an authentic experience. A bicycle tour that caters to all ages and abilities. Groups ride through different locations on the island with a guide who explains a little about the history of the area you are in, little cultural activities along the way, lunch and a swim to cool off. Definitely, a great way to get a workout and learn about the island at the same time.”
