More active options include world class snorkelling, diving, fishing, hiking the incredible rainforest that surround Maqai and surfing. Village visits , volleyball, kayaking.

The Sand Bar is the heart of the resort with plenty of room to relax under the big roof. With leather chairs, mahogany tables and a white sandy floor and lounge area. This is where everyone comes to dine and mingle and share stories with guests and locals.
