When not perfecting the art of relaxation there is plenty to do on and around Matamanoa Island. Guests enjoy complimentary use of all non-motorised activities: snorkel the pristine waters of this marine sanctuary only steps away from the beach; kayak over the beautiful coral reefs or Hobie Cat out to the deep waters of the Pacific Ocean. If you’re feeling energised, challenge the Activities Team to beach Volleyball or join them on a guided mountain hike. Challenge your partner to a game of Tennis or Table Tennis. So much to do on Matamanoa Island Resort
