About Cobblers Cove
You can make you time at Cobblers Cove as restful or as active as you wish. You can lounge on the sundeck and enjoy the cooling treats offered by the welcoming staff, explore the island and it’s rich history or discover the lush tropical gardens.

Activities include waterskiing, snorkelling, kayaking, tubing, banana boat rides, windsurfing, sunfish sailing or scuba diving. Or, for something a bit different, you can book a trip and join an island fishing trip where you’ll join beloved fisherman Barker aiming to acquire his ‘Catch of the Day’ which will then be served at the hotel restaurant for lunch or dinner.
Back on dry land, Cobblers Cove has a floodlit, hard surface tennis court with equipment available so you can enjoy a match or two. The air conditioned fitness centre is the place to keep up with your regular workout or to take part in the various classes such as Yoga, Pilates aerobics and stretch.
