For outdoor adventures, secluded beaches, many miles of hiking trails, paddle boarding and kayaking are just some of the activities available. Guests wanting to learn more about the military history of the island can visit Fort McKinley Museum. The primary mode of transportation on the island is by bike and golf cart, making the island a family’s paradise.

 

 

Formerly a military base built in the late 19th century, the island also served as a retreat for American literary giants like Harriet Beecher Stowe and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.
