Imagine waking up each morning and having to decide if your mood is likely to steer you to the Marina for a little sailing or kayaking; perhaps an hour or two of fly fishing after breakfast, followed by a leisurely stroll along more than a kilometre of sandy beach before lunching al fresco.
A visit to the fascinating shark aquarium might precede a spot of bird watching, as the afternoon lazily stretches its shadows towards a copper sunset. There is the prospect of cocktails at the clubhouse with friends who have had the same choices to make.
