Now those are truly the definition of tranquillity and will provide any restless traveller with a little slice of Heaven, and a large side of peace of mind.
While the water here is the perfect place to try your hand at any of those water sports, it is also a wonderful, and family-friendly place to kick back, and enjoy the day soaking in the sun.
