Swim with the sea turtles at Paynes Bay Beach, an attractive strip of coastline. Rest in the shaded areas or on a rented deckchair, and head out into the water for a cooling swim. Try some sports on the water with a number of catamaran and jet ski rental facilities. Alternatively, head to the south of the beach to find the quieter areas, away from the cruise ship tour groups and noisy recreation. All along the coast, keep your eyes peeled for sea turtles feeding on the ocean floor.
