Needless to say, since Tamarind Hills was built directly on Ffryes Beach, laying out in the sun is popular with guests staying here. Frryes Beach has clear, calm water. There's not a lot to see snorkeling, but swimming will be relaxing and you wont have to dodge coral reefs or rock formations beneath the waves.
