Sailing a blokart is super easy to learn. We'll give you a 10 minute lesson to ensure you have the most fun during your time on the track. This activity is for everyone because you control the speed.

We have two shadow (double) blokarts available so small children or elderly parents can ride in the "side car".

The beach of 1000 Steps thanks its name to the limestone stairs you have to descent to get there. Though the name might sound a bit intimidating, the stairs only exists of about 67 steps. When getting yourself up after a sunny day on this peaceful beach though, it might feel like a thousand, which would explain the name. The site exists of white sand and bleached chunks of coral, and the cove is surrounded by limestone cliffs. It's great for both diving and snorkeling as turtles are often found in the shallow, turquoise waters.
