Hermit Island offers a unique opportunity to see the diverse sea life in and around the island itself. There are multiple hidden beach pockets, rocky shorelines, and marine life such as star fish, urchin, crabs, snails and much more! The ambiance is truly majestic and you will feel like you are on a tropical vacation in South America. PLUS, if you want to make your stay longer than a road trip day, I suggest renting a campsite and enjoying a truly beautiful and relaxing weekend away from the city!
