Where can pre-booked casual visitors park their watercraft upon arrival?

All pre-booked casual visitors arriving to the resort in a motorised watercraft will be required to beach/anchor their vessels in designated landing zones (note that Tangalooma Island Resort may change the exact location of the landing zone at any time).

Any pre-booked casual visitors arriving at the resort in their own motorised watercraft will be directed to use a new dedicated beach landing zone, that allows us to ensure our guests can feel safe in the water when swimming in other areas, and all people in motorised watercraft get a dedicated and exclusive beach landing area whereby they also feel they are not hindering people swimming out the front of the resort. This area will be signed as a no swimming zone for our resort guests and has been specifically set aside for our pre-booked casual day visitor's motorised watercraft.

Upon arrival, the travelling party must immediately proceed to reception and present valid identification to have their pass validated
