Spacious, well-designed bungalows (some in a child-free area, others for families), grassy slopes to the water, snorkel gear and kayaks: all are good, and the restaurant is a grand area (nonguests welcome). The ferry leaves from Phillips Wharf; ask for the schedule when you book. There’s a dive shop and day spa.
