As the turquoise water kisses the shore and laps the limestone cliffs, the sky flirts in a magnificent array of deep oranges, pinks, yellows and lilacs. With a frozen coconut daiquiri in hand, a fork stuck into mouth-watering prawns, and chilled-out coastal tunes oozing from the speakers, guests at Sandy Bay Beach Club are encouraged to unwind, dig their toes into the sand, and witness the sun melt into the ocean in a spectacular explosion of colour.
