Hiking, Jogging and Nature Walks
Early in your stay, we recommend that you explore the island with a guided Orientation Walk to give you a taste of the wild natural beauty, the mystery and the history that is Wakaya. In all, the island offers 15 miles of roadway for hiking and jogging, leading to tropical forests, white beaches and spectacular lookout points. The island’s southern tip is a wildlife sanctuary rich with exotic fauna including feral horses, deer, pigs and goat.
Golf, Tennis and Croquet
The Wakaya Club & Spa has its own 9-hole golf course, a small but challenging course with dazzling views of Homestead Bay as it meanders through a 19th century copra plantation. Our Wimbledon-Tex surfaced tennis court is lighted for play during evening hours. The Wakaya Club & Spa pro will be happy to give lessons or participate with you.
Our David Niven Croquet Court is adjacent to the tennis court. We will be happy to instruct you in the rules of the game, for your enjoyment. Equipment for golf, tennis and croquet, including clubs, racquets, mallets and balls, is available at the Sports Bure.
With so few people on the island, court times and tee times are wide open. When would you like to play?
Private Beaches and Beach Picnics
Wakaya’s numerous private beaches allow you to experience the South Pacific in its most pristine state.
The Wakaya Club & Spa offers both private and group beach picnics for your enjoyment every day of the week except Sunday. For a private picnic for two, you will be transported to a secluded beach, along with a picnic hamper filled with gourmet cuisine, your beverages of choice and a radio telephone, and then picked up at a specified hour. There is not a more romantic outing anywhere on the planet!
For Group Picnics, The Wakaya Club & Spa staff will prepare a barbecue lunch on the beach for you and other guests.
