About the location

It’s clean and sophisticated, boasting white sands and turquoise waters, and a result, has been nicknamed the “Platinum Coast.”

The charming town of Holetown is nearby, and offers a selection of exclusive shops, restaurants and bars, as well as a beach offering excellent snorkelling in the colourful coral reefs. If you fancy a game of golf, or boat trips along the unique coastline, there are plenty of options available nearby.
