The Blue Marlin Hotel has a sea-facing pool, as well as a shallow pool for kids. The spa serves up a menu of facials and hot stone massages, while the Lighthouse Restaurant specialises in traditional South African cuisine. Elsewhere, there’s a PADI diving centre that runs boat trips and scuba diving courses. Kids get their own playground and trampoline.
