Recap: Festival Del Mar

If you were on-island over Easter weekend, you were in for quite a treat at Festival Del Mar!

It was all sail boat races, Johnny cakes, BBQ crayfish and fruity drinks!

A celebration of the sea, and one of the island's most popular festivals, be sure to plan ahead for next year. Festival Del Mar is held every Easter weekend.

We highly recommend staying at Arawak Beach Club, right in the heart of the action.

The reasons are many to love Arawak!

First, its location right in Island Harbour. You are moments away from the island's top eateries including Artisan (best pizza), Nat's Palm Grove (best crayfish) and Le Bon Pain (best bakery).

You are also right in front of Scilly Cay and just around the corner from glorious Shoal Bay East.

Arawak also delivers when it comes to rooms & suites. Their units are priced competitively.

Bright, clean, comfy and complete with kitchenettes, it doesn't get higher value than this!

The property boasts a whole of amenities, too, including sparkling pool, high speed Internet, access to paddle boards and kayaks and more!
