Dine: Breakfast and candlelight dinners are served in the breezy Tamarind Tree restaurant. Barefoot buffet lunches are far from ordinary, with plump barbecued shrimp and made-to-order gourmet sandwiches served in the open-air Beach Café & Bar
Don't Miss: Just a few minutes from the property is Nelson's Dockyard, a national park—the working marina is a great place to spend the afternoon admiring gleaming yachts and ships. It's also home to a collection of 18th-century structures that now house great boutiques, art galleries, and restaurants.
