Visited by Catamaran, food at restaurant excellent, island beautiful, lots of lizards including large ones. You can do a jeep safari but UK insurance does not cover this as the jeep is russian and over 50 years old.

We visited the Paradise Island Catamaran tour on Monday 14/08. This trip was very good. The coach journey to the dock is rather a bumpy ride but that is due to the road quality, however once you get there and are on board you can...More
