Extra information

Rules
Zones

There are a few rules, mainly where to launch and land the kite as not to be a hazard to any beach users and not launching/landing right in front of the centre. There are some buoys marking areas where not to kite over as to avoid coral in the shallower water, and again, not to be a danger to beach users.

Nightlife

Beach bar called The Sandpit, and that is open most evenings. They have good music and good company. You can have a pretty chilled out night or games, dancing and just general good times.
