It's a tropical paradise for the whole family to unplug from digital distraction and reconnect to the loved ones you hold dear, and to the earth that you share with them. Denis Island offers a host of child-friendly activities which include treasure hunts, baking, visits to the giant tortoises, collecting chicken eggs on the island farm, and kids' bicycles.
