We had a group of 10 ladies and got the Barracks 152 house which is on top of hill. Nicely tucked away and short walk down to beach for a quick dip and walk along on a nice summers day.

This is a nice easy ride if you have littluns who might struggle to cross the island to more far flung locations. There's plenty of history and a couple of easy geocaches uf you're into caching (look it up if you're not). I stayed here...More
