Blessed with this unique environment, water sports are at the very heart of the resort’s ethos.

The resort’s sailing school offers sailing instruction for all ages and abilities and runs a sailing and activity programme for children. 40 knots kiteboarding school operates from Nonsuch Bay offering kite boarding and windsurfing instruction and equipment rental. Just a short boat ride from the resort, off lying coral reefs and uninhabited islands offer snorkelling in crystal clear waters and white sandy beaches.

Tuition is adapted to suit the interests and experience of guests. Beginners and those new to dinghy sailing can start with instruction on the shore-based simulator and sailing accompanied by an instructor in an RS Vision or an Elite.

Nonsuch Bay’s crystal clear waters are a perfect location for kitesurfing, one of the best in the Caribbean if not the best. Tuition, equipment and support for kitesurfing and kiteboarding are offered by 40knots Kitesurfing and Windsurfing School.
Enjoy the seclusion and natural beauty of an uninhabited deserted island. A short boat ride takes you to its superb beaches, which makes a great base for snorkeling around its shores and over the adjoining coral reef. A club launch can whisk you over or you can take a cruising dinghy or catamaran.
