The reef that once protected the Spanish pirates and British navies today protects the island from the capricious weather, and protects all its tropical wealth above and below the water. The lush tropical vegetation along the legions of palms that crown its beaches and brilliant turquoise waters draw the features that many have in mind when we think of a natural paradise.
