strenuous but exciting. Water sports equipment and facilities are available
for hire on all resort islands. There is either a fully equipped diving
school or more elaborate water sports center.

of their own. Equipments for sports such as lawn tennis, football,
volleyball, and Indoor games such as billiards, table tennis, chess or darts
are usually available free of charge in many of the resort islands.

on the beach; sit under the sun or under the cool green shade; admire the

crowded. Every island resort is Robinson Crusoes island but equipped
with modern amenities subtly hidden away. As depicted by local artist in
