There's opportunity to do all sorts of outdoor activities like canoeing and kayaking, as well as fishing, diving, snorkelling or just taking it easy on the beach.

And some visibility tips for kayakers, sourced from
  • Your head is the highest point so make it as visible as possible - wear a fluoro orange or yellow hat
  • Place reflective strips on your paddles - increasing your visibility during motion
  • Wear a brightly coloured PFD (personal flotation device)
  • Mount a pole at the rear to carry a high visibility flag
  • Chose a craft with a bright colour - contrasting to the water - add strips of reflective tape
