THINGS TO DO

We spent five months living at Blue Apple during the pandemic of 2020 and never got bored. Remember, you're on holiday, so you're meant to do a whole lot of nothing. But if the mood takes you, here are some other ways to fill your island days.  To book or for more information, contact us on Whatsapp or by email.

 

All of the activities listed here have an additional cost. To see what's included in your stay, check out our weekly program and take a look at the facilities
