See the colourful coral right in front of your eyes or swim in one of St John’s Island’s many lagoons. You might also like to enjoy a pleasant picnic on the beach or go dolphin spotting by the water.

First stop of ferry ride. Big island. Couple of stretch of beach and mangroves. One small hill and a small marine park. Simple walk would do and I would recommend Kusu Island for family activity than St John’s.
