One of the most remarkable things about the Facebook content we create everyday is how popular it has become in the last few years. We are a small surf resort in the middle of nowhere but currently have over 43,000 real people following us. That’s an amazing following and a testament to the hard work Ray, Justis, and the staff on the island do everyday to keep our updates interesting.

We have just finished adding a one-of-a-kind online booking system to make reserving your trip as fast and painless as possible. If you click on the image below it will take you to our reservation page and from there all you have to do is scroll down, choose the date you want, fill in the requested information, and start the countdown to happiness!
