Went once a long time ago with ex. Went on fishing trip and it was lame and so was snorkeling trip out to a sunken german ship it was OK.....Island is very ugly and expensive but again mine was a long time ago and I'm not a sit on the beach type of guy, was stationed in Hawaii and got my fill of it quick my speed is more Port A with truck, coolers and pop ups with beach chairs. There might have been much better fishing trips further offshore

Go to the lighthouse side and walk the beach one evening. Take a jeep ride out to the tidal pool. I do not remember the name but all of the rentals will say not to take them there. We did and it wasn't bad at a slow pace. Everything is expensive.

It's been a while for me as well but I recall we went to a nice hotel and boarded a submarine and went on an excursion. It was good fun. They're also considered the sailboarding capital of the world. If you surf, there's one inlet you can go to that produced good waves. Fishing then wasn't that great but find a boat that goes towards Venezuela and it should be really good. Plenty of casinos everywhere and nude beaches but I'm not into either of them (at least after i lost all my money the first week when living there in college) don't hold my past against me though! hope you have a great trip.

There used to be a nice beach near the lighthouse by the old Exxon setup if you can make your way there to explore. No people were around for some reason (could have been the wild goats)
