Events/Activities around the property:
The popular, but endangered leatherback turtle and four other species choose Big Bay as their annual nesting site. Viewing the spectacle of this giant (1500lbs/12 foot) turtle using its large flippers to inch its way unto the beach, carving out a large basin in the sand, laying over 100 eggs and tedious journey back to the ocean. Within 4 to 5 days another spectacle of hundreds of hatchings shuttle on their journey into the ocean.
Turtle watch guides play an extremely important role in the protection of the adults and their hatchlings from predators- both human and animals.
During this period, the powerful North Atlantic storms produce swells (waves) averaging 4 ft to 6ft providing an ideal occasion for the sport. A regular short surf board/rubber surf matt/belly board are suitable fixtures. Many residents of the village are avid surfers and are positioned at our resort to provide the basics in the sport .
This is the ideal period for comfortable swimming occurring when the North Atlantic currents are at their weakest.
San Souci Turtle Watch & Surfing Resort is surrounded by dense tropical forest and provides an ideal habitat for birds and butterflies. Birds in particular have an auditory display of vocal sounds which identify their species. Bird watching is a hobby which requires binoculars, a camera and the assistance of local field guides from the village.
