A few Things to do  on the Island

Enjoying the Beach

As with all beaches in the TCI, the Bristol Hill beach is open to the public but unlike most other beaches on the Island, there is no public access point to the beach from the roads. As a result, the beach is private and only shared among the few other multimillion dollar Villas located  along its length. The entire 200 foot white sand beach front in front of the Villa  is part of the grounds which is conveniently equipped with Villa umbrellas , chairs and water craft.  The beach also has WIFI and telephone access for those who  are on a working holiday.

Kayaking

Using the  Villa kayaks you can venture out along the shoreline or go far into the bay and visit the small Islands. One of the Islands has small sand beaches  and the children should know  that there are old stories of treasure having being left by pirates on one of them-  no one has found it yet. For the less brave, there is also a paddle boat that can carry 3 to 4 people and can be used to cruise the calm waters of the bay.

Swimming

The water in front of the Villa is both very calm and pleasantly shallow at  both high and low tide.   It is ideal for small children and has the advantage that the water is always comfortably warm.  Fish, turtles, star fish, conchs and other sea life are often seen in these waters.

Fishing

The bay in front of the Villa and Flamingo lake on the north side of the road as one travels to the Villa  are well known by sports fishermen as excellent bone fishing locations.

 

Kite boarding and windsurfing

The bay  in front of the Villa is a well known kite boarding area and while well known it is not that popular because access is very limited and requires access through private property. In your case, it is in the front yard. Lessons and rental equipment are available on the Island.

 

The Night Sky

On the south side of the Island where the Villa is located there is no light pollution. On cloudless nights, the view of the sky is quite spectacular. Shooting stars  and the odd passing satellite  are clearly  visible.

 

Relax in a room with a view

While not on the beach, the screened gazebo provides panoramic beach views from 3 stories above the beach.
