Miles of hiking and biking trails provide a glimpse at a remarkable variety of flora and fauna unique to Peter Island. Snorkeling, deep-sea fishing, and scuba diving are some of the water sports available to the guests. Five white-sand beaches provide the setting for any water-sports, and yachts may be chartered to explore the island. Little Deadman’s Bay attracts a majority of the island’s yachts and also serves as popular snorkeling spot.

The Tradewinds restaurant offers a sophisticated approach to West Indian dishes, served against the backdrop of the Drake Channel and neighboring Tortola Island.
