Trip to Johnny Cay and visit to San Andres Aquarium: Ride over the multicoloured shades of the Sea of Seven Colours to the picturesque islets off the coast of San Andres. Feel the sea breeze through your hair and the warmth of the sun’s rays as you glide over the water to an expectant Caribbean paradise. Enjoy the beauty of Aquarium and Hayne’s Cay as well as the famous Johnny Cay Island.
With their picture postcard Caribbean setting you’ll be transported to a sunny paradise. Crystal clear waters, fine golden sand and coconut palms make these islands some of the finest snorkelling and sunbathing destinations possible. Firstly, we head to Hayne’s Cay on the boat; a lush palm covered island with golden sand which is a delight to behold. Its resident cockatoos sing in your ears as you sit back and relax on its pretty beach, or head into the turquoise waters to swim and snorkel around the coral reefs that attract a vast array of colourful marine life including manta rays. The calm and shallow waters between Hayne’s Cay and Aquarium Cay, a sandbank, mean that you can walk between the two places and swim between them easily. From both locations you can admire the vibrant fish that swim in and amongst the coral reef and rest on its idyllic shores. From here we continue to the famed islet of Johnny Cay, the closest to San Andres, where calypso music, reggae and coconut rum cocktails are waiting. Here you can truly sit back and relax on the soft sand, dip your toes in the ocean and listen to the Caribbean tunes as you while away the time and forget all your worries.
