Stay on the side of island near the ship. The other side is windy and waves which is not as nice for swimming. Go to the third bay at the end of the island for less people, near the barbecue lunch. we had the beach almost all to ourselves. The water playground closes at 2:45 p.m. so go early if your kids want to do it.

Loved that all the services were free or use sea pass. Tip, remind passengers that they should have cash for tips. We thought we wouldn't need any cash and my husband had to go back to ship to get it to tip the gentlemen who set up our beach chairs.

Do the Dragon's Breath zip line. Not only is it quite a thrill to go 50-60 MPH from 500 ft up but you get an amazing view of the island from the top of the zip line. The rest of the island is beautiful. Very relaxing day. You can rent all sorts of watercraft, play in thier waterpark (need to pay for those) or enjoy the crystal blue waters. There are a few areas to swim, whether you want to hit the waves or lie on a mat in the calm lagoon.

Much improved since the last time we were there. Developed really nice. As a caution, wear water shoes when you swim. I stepped on a sea urchin and had a tender foot for a few days till I realized there were some stingers still inside.

Get your bottled water before you get off the ship. They try to sell you the big bottles of water and beer and a cooler as soon as you get off the ship and it was a big mess. The island is very clean and had a nice paved path you could walk or take the wheel chair on, We did not do any of the water sports or zip lines . The vendors are very pushy.

We had a great time, until it rained in the afternoon. The beach was nice, but not even close to the best I've been to. I did the Waverunner Experience and got to ride with a griup on a brand new Sea Doo - TONS of fun! Word of caution - you might not enjoy this if you're not an experienced rider because you ride at full speed for most of the hour. Good times!

Loved that lunch was provided and we could use our drink package. Chairs were free but we were frustrated that the workers were hoving for tips after putting our chair on the beach.
