But they still appreciate the company of like-minded families and visitors to share their paradise. Three self-catered, hi-tech, eco-friendly accommodation units can sleep up to ten persons.
Visitors can share a variety pursuits, such as fishing, kayaking, swimming, snorkelling; or perhaps quiet, spiritual rejuvenation. And the attractive beach is not the only naturist option: there are also secure scenic bush walks on the 25 ha property.
