You're supposed to do the Awesome Foursome (Bungee, helicopter, jet boat and white water rafting). The ski season has also just finished, much to my disappointemnt, but I do take a jet boat ride. It is supposed to be a tame one, but I get the co-pilot’s seat and I end up with arms like Twizzle and a massof bruises after the pilot has finished demonstrating his ability to execute 360 degree turns in four inches of water.

The island is extraordinarily pretty with craggy peaks. My beach bungalow faces the most picture perfect lagoon straight out of the paradise catalogue with little islets (called motus) a reef (with crashing waves that sound like an aeroplane that never quite manages to land) and the obligatory white sand and bendy palm trees.
