Bush walking, Snorkelling, Sunsets, Kayaking and more
With several kilometres of beachfront, Tranquillity offers you excellent water-based activities including snorkeling, scuba diving and kayaking. There is also plenty to do on land, where you can take a picnic lunch and walk to a secluded beach, or along the southerly bush trail to search for treasure in our ancient caves. You can laze on your private beach and raid our book exchange.
Bush Walking – Wander off Tranquillity’s paths and you’ll quickly find yourself a jungle adventure amongst thick trees and vines. Ask the managers to sketch you a map or hire a local guide
Fred’s Beach – Walk for an hour along the beach and up over the saddle to get to Fred’s Beach, which is fantastic for snorkelling and a perfect picnic spot – just ask for a packed lunch.
Sunset Beach – Another perfect beach with some great caves hiding some special surprises – walk up to the campside and along the track to the southern point of the island.
Snorkeling – Our house reef spread 3km+ along the shore, snorkeling can be easily done just few steps from your Fare. Variety underwater landscape offer chances for different levels either newbie or expert!
The sandy bottom is where you can find camouflage flounder, tiny pipe fish, overly dressed lion fishes and shy stingrays. Patches of sea grass are where many marine animals begin life, perfect bedding for juvenile fish to shelter from predators. We don’t want to mention the appearance of Dugong too often, it will spoil the odd chance to spot them. Bommies are homes for the cardinal fishes, you could spend hours to watch those brightly blue Anthias dashing in and out between coral, some moray eel might be playing hide and seek with you. Star fish from red to blue decorate the individual reefs and make its own diversity full with life.
Coral reef abundant with colourful reef fish, competitions are on for which fish got to catch your eyes. Hawkbills and Green turtles like to hang out here too, just another addition to amuse how lucky we are to have the wonderful house reef just by our door step! Jump in the clear blue water in front of the resort to have a look at the remains of the WW2 submarine nets that protected the US Navy during the war. The are also many other snorkeling areas accessible by short bush walks.
Kayaking – We have 3 twin kayaks available to hire. The Sunset and Banyan Beaches can be reached on a calm day, just head around the southern point. Or head north up to White Rock and beyond to look out for turtles and of course the Dugong. A guide can be arranged for a full/half day or ovenight. Packed lunches and camping gear can be provided.
Fishing – Get picked up in a traditional banana boat and head out for some serious game fishing. The deep warm water attracts big fish including Marlin, Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo and Sailfish – catch something and bring it back for the BBQ. Pick up from the pier for a full or half day. Trips ideal for both beginners and the more experienced.
