Relax at the beach

There’s nothing quite like a relaxing day on the beach with no agenda but to soak up some warm sunshine and enjoy a dip in the crystal clear turquoise sea! Want to make your beach day with mom extra special? Pack some delicious snacks and beverages and set up a picnic to surprise mom.  Make sure to try one of our favorite beaches.

Sunset cruising

One of the best ways to enjoy the day is to spend it out at sea, surrounded by sparkling turquoise water and soaking up the warm sunshine, living your best life with mom! How does a quiet and relaxing sunset cruise sound? Or perhaps you want to spend the day lounging on the sun deck sipping a refreshing cocktail?  Maybe you want to experience a little underwater snorkeling adventure? Whatever the mood calls for, you will find it offered, browse sail and catamaran cruises.

Surprise her with a gift

If you like to treat your mom to a gift on this special day make sure to make it a thoughtful and unique one. There is so much shopping to be done on the island and the best part is you can support our local community while doing it! We suggest browsing for a unique piece of locally made jewelry or art, or, if jewelry is not really your mom’s thing, you can’t go wrong with a fresh bouquet of tropical flowers!

Get lost in nature

Try one of the scenic nature trails in our National Park. All you need to do is make a trip to the visitor’s center and purchase a day pass. The park has endless hiking options, once you step into the park, make your way to the rugged and beautiful North Coast! As you pass the beautiful green cacti, vegetation, rugged rock formations, herds of goats and approach the coast…you will see the dramatic, darker blue waters clash against the rocks, an impressive sight to see! With many trails and sights to discover there is plenty of hiking, slow-paced walking, and biking to be done here.
