The swimming is great directly in front of the lodge. particularly in the mid to high tide range where you can avoid the sea grass. There are no recent records of any nasties in the sea around the lodge such as sharks, crocodiles or stone ﬁsh. However, care should be taken as there is a strong cross current at times, and guests should not attempt to swim out to the reef — it is a long way back! For those who do not want to take the boat to the reef they can view some coral and ﬁsh close to the beach on the southern side of the jetty.
