    Really cool and nicely decorated resort with cabins on the water and very friendly staff and owners. The restaurant is very nice, as well on water, and food is simply delicious. They have happy hour from noon till 6pm with 1usd beer.

    There are many boat taxi's available to take you across the water. It is a short distance - so usually the cost is less than $2 but be sure and ask ahead of time.
