Location: To get to the Villa you turn uphill at Amichi Pizza next to Ronnie's Market. This is the Horizon Yoga road and is Black tar at the bottom.

Road up to Villa:

The road up the the Villa is less than 1K but very steep at the bottom section and very rocky and bumpy towards the top. It requires 4x4 and i generally use low gear and drive upslowly. Any 4x4 can make it up and once your here you will be very glad you did.


Surfing, Standup Paddle-boarding, Body Surfing, Hand Boarding, Boogie-boarding, swimming, sea fishing are all World Class. The Surf is extremely consistent and there is a great opportunity to learn to surf while you here. Many professional surf instructors and all the rental gear along with slow smooth waves that allow even beginners and novice find a break that works for them. Many Many beach breaks and a few point breaks makes it easy to find your own peak and enjoy empty waves with humpback whales and an occasional dolphin.

If surfing isn't for you then the triple water fall or a canopy tour would be a great option. You can always go for a snorkel tour to tourtuga island or deep sea finishing and bring back that monster tuna!! Mountain bike trails and Quad tours are also very popular.
