Truman, also liked to spend winters here. Even the island’s accommodations, such as party hotels and hotels with in-room kitchen, offer top-notch amenities. Pleasant weather, delicious seafood cuisine, and architecture that pleases the eye make it a favourite spot for tourists and locals alike. How about experiencing it all from the boat? Hop on-board, where you can enjoy food, drinks, entertainment, and service from a smiling crew. Some of the boats even have a DJ and an open bar with unlimited drinks.
