At Siboney Beach Club, described in Caribbean Travel & Life as “the Oasis alternative on Dickenson Bay”, you can lounge in sun or shade on the beach, cooled by the tradewinds. Cool out in the pool where most likely there will be just the two of you, as if you were in your own pool in your own luxury home and garden. Swing in a hammock slung between palms in the garden, enjoy being idle, laze about with rum punches and books, watch the clouds go by and the frigate birds wheel overhead.

Banana quits and humming birds crowd around the bird feeders in the ficus trees and frigate birds soar overhead whilst ducks paddle, and stilts and snowy egrets wade around the logoon under the watchful eyes of pelicans roosting in the mangroves – a delight for the birds watchers and photographers.
