Firstly, enjoy swimming with the turtles just off the coast from Cobblers Cove beach and make use of the water sports facilities before heading to Mullin’s, a great local bar. Afternoon tea is served between 4-5 pm at Cobblers Cove and is definitely worth getting back for in time!

When staying at Cotton House it is really fulfilling to absorb the tranquillity and luxury of the Island through enjoying the local landscape and the quietness. Here are a few recommendations from the Tropic Breeze Team to make sure you explore all that the Island has to offer, our first and biggest tip is to pre book a “mule” for hire.. As the Island has no cars the hotel offers golf buggies that guests can hire, however they get very busy so make sure you book ahead.
A unique island experience is a picnic on the beach and included in your sugar and spice package is a beach picnic which can be delivered to you any where on the Island, our recommendation is the famous Macaroni beach- One of the most tranquil beaches we have come across!
Pack your complementary snorkelling equipment from your room and spend your day enjoying the water sports available around the Island from water skiing to deep sea fishing and diving- the oceans surrounding this Island are an abundance of marine life that anyone would feel lucky to explore. Once you have finished with your day of water sports head back to Cotton House and enjoy the all you can eat Lobster grill followed by an evening movie on the lawn. Cotton House puts an emphasis on wellness and offers a great range of activities and spa treatments to help you relax, we would suggest starting your morning with a yoga classes before heading to the spa to try one of their indulgent treatments.
