For Families

Beach time and pool time are the most popular pastimes for kids and adults alike. The kiddies love  to frolicking at the waters’ edge while mum and dad relax and soak up the warm Caribbean sun. Watersports are readily available with Jet Ski rides, paddle boarding and kayaking as fun family activities. Most restaurants and eateries in The Gap are family friendly and you can enjoy a nice quiet (we hope) famjam dinner. Almost directly opposite the beach is a large green playing field where the family can pack a picnic, grab a ball while the kids enjoy nature.  If you still need a little me time with your significant other our Concierge can arrange babysitting services for your precious prodigies.
