Things to See and Do While Staying at El Zafiro

Staying active and busy is the ideal vacation experience for some, but this isn't necessary for you to enjoy your time off. Thus, though El Zafiro doesn't offer the most impressive variety of recreational possibilities, it may still provide precisely the setting you're hoping to find.

This hotel is backed up to the water, so its lack of a swimming pool is often overlooked by guests who usually spend their time lounging beachside. In truth, even when staying at a property with a pool, many visitors are so glad to lounge on sandy coast that they visit the pool very little during their stay.


Even though El Zafiro doesn't feature a golf course, you might be able to schedule a tee time. The nearest course is Mullet Bay Golf Course, which you'll find three quarters of a mile northwest of the property. Players will find 18 challenging holes at this nearby course. It's a par 70 course, and is 5799 yards long. For golfers who want to learn more, you can call the course at (721) 545-2850.


Visitors that want a wide variety of watersports will have a great experience during their stay at El Zafiro. The list below details the water activities that the property offers.

  • Kayaking
  • Paddleboarding
  • Snorkeling
  • Watercraft
