Golf players are going to love this place and its more than 70 scenic courses. The sub-tropical climate won’t disappoint either. The island offers plenty of water activities if you want to get off the ground for a change. Boating, kayaking and water-skiing are very popular there. Fishing can be very entertaining – you may catch a fish you haven’t seen before. There are 50 kinds of fish swimming in the island’s waters. You may be surprised, but bird watching is popular there too because of the 230 kinds of birds inhabiting the area. The island has its own shell museum (of all things!). Visiting it is perfect if it happened to be a rainy day.
