  • The Sunsets

    Nothing nicer than watching the sun fall on the horizon of the Indian Ocean. Some can be truly spectacular. Take a picnic and either cast your blanket on the white sandy shores or use one of the covered picnic tables with a front view seat to this stunning view. Take a light jacket in summer, the breeze can sometimes get a little cool.
