It includes sun longer and parasol and a turtle tour! Amazing value for money. Free shots at the bar are not to be missed when the alarms go off. Really... More

We was on Thomson discovery cruise so had a day here which is a 5 minute taxi ride from port or a 20 minutes walk. As people put for 20 US dollars each you get sun loungers and umbrella, with free drink, free wifi, free taxi return for cruisers and free swim with turtles. A bargain, nice beach area with... More

Great place lots of chairs but arrive early. They sell out fast especially when the cruise ships are in town. Food and drink on site and pricing wasn't too gouging. The kids enjoyed the water iceberg and trampoline and the rope swing and the high dive. We couldn't do the turtle swim was way too crowded. Staff was friendly and... More

Visited this on my last day of a P&O cruise aboard Azura. $20 USD entry per person, this includes for a Sun bed, umbrella, 1x free drink, toilets, showers and trip to swim with turtles. The white sand is like silk on your feet, the staff are great. I would highly recommend this place.

Heard a lot about the boatyard from friends who are repeat visitors so we called in only to be told there was no sun beds to sit on but still wanted 20 American dollars to enter and put our towels on the beach which we declined. Instead we went next door to pirates cove and got free table seating and... More

Entrance cost is $20pp and includes 1 free drink, chair and umbrella hire, a turtle snorkelling tour and use of all their facilities including rope swings and water trampolines etc. The beach is beautiful....

What a great place! Beautiful beach with lots going on!! Twenty dollars entrance fee includes umbrella, chair, drink, boat ride out to see turtles where you can snorkel and taxi ride back to cruise ship. Restaurant/bar right on the beach with decent food at fair prices. If you are looking for some fun The Boatyard is the place!!
