Adjacent to the residential area is the harbour town, bustling with shops, restaurants, and various tourist activities such as ferry boats, canoe hire, yacht charters, and weekend craft markets.

The venue of Lazy Island is divided into three self-catering units: Beach, Driftwood, and Pebble. Guests can rent the entire house or just one unit, each with its own private entrance.
