On the north end of the island, there are a number of trails which will take you around the coast or over the main ridge of Necker. There are also two floodlit Astroturf tennis courts next to the Beach House, and a zip line stretching from The Great House to the far end of Turtle Beach.
There are plenty of places on Necker Island to lie on the beach and enjoy the sun, sand and sea and, as if being on Necker wasn’t relaxing enough, the island also boasts the beautiful Bali Leha and Bali Samudra spa treatment rooms, combining fabulous treatments with an incredible setting.
