If you don't dive or fish, then your tropical island vacation can be one of utter relaxation in a hammock with a good book, enjoying the peace and quiet, and the lovely white sand beaches, and the warm blue Caribbean sea. You could be more energetic and paddle a kayak, or sail a Hobie cat around the island, or better still go snorkeling and see a myriad of multi coloured fish.
