    We had a fabulous time at Castaways. Our unit was re-modelled andspotless. The staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. The views over the bay were awesome. We saw osprey, herons, various wadin birds and spoonbills. We even saw a dolphin!

    Incredible sunrises on the lagoon and sunsets on the beach. Where else can you enjoy both and not walk more than 100 yards. The Castaways provide a peaceful and relaxing vacation spot and that is why we come back every year.
