    Relax or adventure

    What do you enjoy more exploring the island to search out new spots or simply relaxing at resort or beach

    Definitely relaxing on the beach at the resort. No reason to leave the resort as the water is gorgeous; there is beach service and plenty of people watching.

    We’ve more or less explored perhaps every square mile of this wonderful place, but There’s nothing more relaxing to me than swimming solo over the reef followed up with crashing in the sand with my wife. However, sometimes it can be an adventure finding my rental keys or reading glasses

    Both! After a couple of relaxing beach days in a row it's time to get out and about and explore or go snorkeling or horseback riding, etc. Then back to the beach the next day. We have seen probably everything on the island but it's fun to revisit areas and find new nooks and crannies.

    I love to explore the island. Relaxing on the beach is nice, but finding that out of the way local spot is so much fun. We find a new place almost every trip, and we visit past discoveries too. It also helps that we visit for an amount of time that allows us to leave the beach and see the island.

    the most adventure we like is going to different beaches but I always take a day here & there for shopping.
