3 Relaxing Things To Do at Mango Sunsets

Vacations are supposed to be restful, right?  Some days you want to be on the go, other days you want to stick close to the condo. Here are three things to help you relax while staying at Mango Sunsets.

Schooners - Serving as Seychelles' On-Site Restaurant

What a treat to have the "last local beach club" next door to our condo. It has so many benefits to our guests. The first of them is that it is literally a few steps from your front door whether you exit the front or the beach side of the building. Dress as you wish (including swim suits and flip flops) to enjoy all that Schooners has to offer.

  • Tiki Bar - Stroll in, grab a drink from the bar and head right back to your seat on the sand
  • Sunset Cannon - Every night the bar counts down to our gorgeous sunsets with a cannon shot to celebrate it. Note you'll jump the first night you hear it but then come to enjoy the nightly ritual.
  • Events on the Beach - Schooners knows how to throw a party. Several times a year, they'll set up a beach stage with live music and audience games. Be sure to reserve a stay during Lobsterfest or Cajunfest.

Schooners is also a wonderful place to listen to some local bands play some of your favorite songs on the inside stage. This happens nightly during the summer and on the weekends at other times of the year. On your way out, grab on of their t-shirts. They make great souvenirs and are comfortable with a local flavor.

INSIDER TIP: Try the blackened grouper sandwich. It is delicious! And ask for a beach side table for the best view and dining experience.

Sandcastle Lessons

A relaxing day at the beach still could use an activity - especially if you have kids. Try sandcastle lessons on your next trip. This is a great way to have some group fun and lean something new. We recommend Beach Sand Sculptures ( beachsandsculptures.com ) for your lessons.

  • Instructor Comes to You - This is the best part. The instructor comes to you and brings all the tools you'll need.
  • Fun in the Sun - Sculpt a castle, a shark, a baseball glove or really anything that comes to mind.
  • Learn Mad Skills for Future Sand Sculptures - Learn that water is the most important part of the process. How a few simple tools is all you need to create your work of art.

INSIDER TIP: Schedule your session online prior to your trip for the best choice of available times. Also let your kids volunteer for the beginning race during your session (you'll understand once you see the results).

Hanging on the Beach!

I'm guessing this is one of the top things you are dreaming about doing on your trip. The beach at Mango Sunsets will not disappoint you. Our building is in a residential area and near the state park. There is plenty of space to spread out even on the busiest beach days. And at certain times of the year, it feels like you have the beach all to yourself.

  • RELAX and Soak Up the Rays - Place your toes in the sand and grab a drink for your hand.
  • Beautiful Blue-Green Waters - Caribbean like waters are crystal clear most times.
  • Activities Available to Rent at Seychelles - Beach chair & umbrellas, jet skies, parasailing, and banana boats are just a few of the activities you can rent directly at on the beach.

INSIDER TIP: Look closely and you'll see bottle-nose dolphins and even a manatee or two swim by the condo.
