Our amazing hosts have made sure we’ve got the absolute best out of our stay here on Camp island. Every day has been full of snorkeling, kayaking, fishing and exploring, and the kids have been entertained from the moment they wake up. This will be one of my most memorable holidays ever. Thanks! It’s been truly amazing.
