the island up to tourism, greatest importance was placed on conserving the pristine island’s nature. The native vegetation composed of palm trees, mangroves, Ruber Fig and Scaebola Trees still thrives on the island.
Teeming with fish of all species, the extremely colourful coral reef is situated a mere ten to 150 metres from the beach, depending on the part of the island.
Above all, Filitheyo is still an authentic experience. Many quiet bays and stretches of lonely beaches offer guests the chance to indulge in the island’s beauty. However, a full circuit walk of the island is not possible.
The Filitheyo Island Resort’s two excellent restaurants treat the guests to a wide range of delicacies. A coffee shop serves a number of snacks and hot drinks.
The resort’s two bars are especially popular at sunset. Featuring a magnificent view, the setting is just right to relax with a sundowner in hand.
An alternative to the ocean, the freshwater swimming pool is beautifully set and features not only a large sundeck equipped with comfortable deckchairs but also a pool bar serving a wide variety of refreshments.
Towel for use at the poolside and for the ocean are available on request. A small boutique, jewellery, a library and a laundry service complete the range of the Filitheyo’s facilities.
At night, traditional dancing shows, live music and occasional disco nights provide entertainment for those who appreciate a little nightlife.
A recommendation from the INTOSOL travel consultant team: Consider booking a standard Beach Bungalow near the beach bar. Here, the lagoon is wider and it is easier to cross the reef for snorkelling.
An alternative are the highly luxurious Water Bungalows featuring a superior range of facilities. No matter which category you ultimately decide upon, it is pleasure for the INTOSOL team to assist you with your booking.
