1. Explore the Titou Gorge

2. Snorkeling at Toucari
Like Champagne Beach, volcanic gases vent from the sea floor off Toucari Beach and create a wall of bubbles. This is an ideal spot for snorkeling or shallow diving. Fantastic sea life abounds here and its fun to hunt for them both onshore and off. This secluded beach just north of Portsmouth and Cabrits National Park.

There is no better way to experience the beauty of the Nature Island than by horseback. So take home unforgettable memories by swimming with your horse or visit the historical Fort Shirley in the stunning Cabrits National Park on horseback. All these amidst a variety of wildlife species and plants.
