Dive the pipeline full of history and treasures... this body of water is one of very few in the world with the deepest ocean floors in proximity to land. It housed a very intelligent Aqua culture marine station studying aquaculture, marine life, and more. Rust op Twist was named the number one spot in the world for Ocean Thermal energy. Top Marine experts from Columbia University, New York, NY and the University of Texas at Austin, TX to name a few spent many years studying these Ocean floors. My grandmother was a scientist, marine biologist and flew supplies and food drops during the war. Her vision, brilliance and presence can be felt from the sugar mill.



Bird watching is a must, housing a bird sanctuary on the estate. There is just life and magic everywhere you go on this property, watching hundreds of Caterpillars morph into majestic butterflies is just another daily thing. Yoga at the sugar mill is bliss and one of two of the best spots on the island to catch both the sunrise and sunset as featured on the bachelor.



If you love turtles you may just be lucky enough to swim with them or see an occasional whale during season. This hauntingly beautiful estate sits on the National Heritage Trail. Find time to journal, for peace, serenity, and go inwards. Inspiration is everywhere.
