Upon return to the wharf, lunch will be served. Savor a feast of local cuisine and then set off on the optional excursions, either a Ugong Rock zip-lining adventure or a riveting ATV experience.

Enjoy a buffet dinner with an amazing view of the sea at dusk, and then hop on a small boat to get even closer to the glittering fireflies around the mangroves.
