Talking of excursions, They, like all the properties on the island offer the same excursions and water sports. Either using their own staff & equipment or booking with a fellow islander on your behalf.
The rates for these tend to be the same, regardless of who you book with. It's a small island where everyone works together. Having said this, depending on how many excursions and or water sports you want to do during your stay, there's always room for negotiation while on the island or a package can be added to your booking prior to arrival,
The nearest beach is only 238 meters away, and happens to be the islands most popular, where you can glide into the warm crystal clear waters or take time out under the complimentary parasols & loungers. The staff are happy to bring your food & beverages down there for you.
758 meters is Sunset Beach and the 3rd beach is 338 meters walk. As you can probably guess from the distances to the various beaches, it takes no more than 10/15 minutes to stroll from one end to the other, so you are never more than a few minutes from anything the island has to offer.

When the hotel vessels have a sufficient number of guests transferring at the same time they may provide the transfer at a reduced rate if the guests are happy to share the vessel. Particularly during these unique times, the various properties are doing their best to help with the transferring of guests, regardless of where they are staying.
Regardless of which transfer option you choose, you will not need to pay separately for your transfers as these will be included in your property booking. Where you are transferring by means of another property's vessel they will arrange for their transfer service to be added to your property booking. Where transferring with Altec you can either add the fare to your property booking or pay them when boarding the vessel in cash.
Upon arrival and having exited the secure area of the airport you will be greeted by a transfer representative from either the hotel or Altec vessel in the arrivals hall, whereby you will be escorted to the vessel in the airport harbour which is only a few meters away.
Be advised, many vessels do not have toilet facilities, so be sure to do what is necessary prior to boarding.
