Speaking of water... watersports are always included at Sandals Resorts. That includes self-propelled activities like kayaking, windsurfing, and paddleboarding, but there’s a whole new world to explore beneath the surface, which is why Sandals Resorts also includes scuba diving as an activity option for certified divers. 

Those who prefer to keep their feet on land will find lots of options, too. Golfers will love the complimentary green fees at the nearby Upton Estate Golf & Country Club. If you’re looking to just relax beneath the sun after so much wedding and honeymoon planning, you can float your time away at five incredible pools, including two meandering river pools.
