There are two plateaus around the edges of the island .The island has some reefs of corals and walls of coral in the Caribbean. Whales cross the shore line when they migrate to the bank and divers who dive deep in the sea can even hear the whale songs. Dolphins are also found in the waters. Tourists will enjoy the sites of these humpback whales and the dolphins.

The migrating birds find the ponds and the marshes an excellent feeding ground. There are many water birds found in the sea. The national park is another point of interest for the visitors. The nature reserves, sanctuaries, and historical sites serve as good points of interest for the tourists. This is the reason why so many tourists come here from all over the world. There is only one casino found on this island. Shopping and exploring the ancient ruins is an ideal way of relaxing for the tourists as there are many shopping centres found here.

The islanders here earn a lot of revenue from tourism. The locals are warm and friendly and make holiday makers feel wanted.

Fishing is an important source of revenue to the islanders and many offer tourists the opportunity to go out fishing with them.
