The Basin

Natural Attractions

This unique swimming spot is a favourite with holidaymakers and each year friendships are made and renewed on the white, sandy beach at The Basin.

Just follow the signposts out of the settlement past the tennis courts to this aptly named pool. It seems to have been scooped out of the reef, its clear turquoise water reflecting the white, sandy bottom.

Surely one of life’s true delights is to lie on the soft sand at The Basin, under a cloudless blue sky, watching the carefree swimmers in the foreground and just beyond in the Indian Ocean, a procession of pleasure-seeking yachts and launches.
