Camp Fires

Due to fire hazards (thatched roofs and bamboo) camp fires are not permitted within the lodge grounds or on the beach immediately in front of the lodge.


Swimming
The swimming is great directly in front of the lodge particularly in the high tide range when you can avoid the sea grass. There are no recent records of any nasties in the sea around the lodge such as sharks, crocodiles, jelly fish 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 in a cross current! 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.
