The Luxury of George Town

The Mastic Reserve

The reserve is a protected area of subtropical dry forest and the three-kilometer long trail within the reserve will take you through dry forest and black mangrove wetland across the jagged iron shore.

The trail is an old one which has undergone repairs, though it is well marked. Nature lovers can spot wild orchids and small animals and birds on the way. Guided tours educate them about the local flora and fauna.

Atlantis Submarines

Do not miss the chance to experience the underwater world in a submarine that will take you to the depth of 30 meters. Peer through the large windows of the submarine and have a look at underwater canyons, shallow reefs, and Tropical Fish.

You can opt for shallow-water excursions and night submarine tours in their Seaworld Observatory.
