Beach | Fishing | Relaxation | Sports & activities | Wildlife
Set on a 330-acre wildlife preserve that incorporates two and a half miles of white, sandy beaches, the resort is ideally suited for quiet retreats. For nature lovers there are myriad species of seashells, 230 species of birds and 20 miles of bike paths along with fishing right off the beach. Head out to the twinkling waters of the Mexican Gulf to spot dolphins or charter a catamaran for a private cruise.
Private white-railed balconies look out through palm trees to the island’s beaches as soft blues and bright white linen underline the resort’s commitment to beach chic. Spacious bathrooms with granite counters and large tubs ensure that the accommodation is more contemporary luxury than Victorian seaside. For larger groups, there are the villas that can be courtside, bayside or beachside while families might opt for a Home or Condo. These generously sized offerings feature dual balconies, full galley-style kitchens and private pools, complete with hot tubs.
South Seas Island’s restaurants aim to please with a fantastic selection of favourites. The signature Harbourside Bar & Grill, overlooking the yacht harbour and marina, serves freshly caught seafood and fine cuts of meat along with classic cocktails as the chef commissions local fishermen to procure only the finest selection that the Gulf of Mexico has to offer. For lighter bites, there’s The Pointe while a 1950s themed diner serves American classics along with a ‘wall of candy’. For those looking to self-cater, there are two well-stocked stores, selling gourmet grocery items. If you’re looking for a nightcap, there are numerous bars available throughout the resort.
A Top 10 Beach Resort for Families, as chosen by Parents Magazine, South Seas Island Resort puts on a full range of activities at its top-of-the-range facilities. Stay in shape at the fitness centre or enjoy a game of tennis on one of the 11 courts. There’s also a golf course and the aforementioned swimming pools while, for the holistically minded, there are reinvigorating Ambu Yoga sessions.
