Rainy Day? GR8 – here’s 8 must do’s!
It’s raining, it’s pouring (well maybe showering) – so let’s get out exploring!
Rainy days here at White Point Beach Resort are filled with arts, crafts, games, swimming – in both pools and even in the ocean – it’s warm out and you’ll already be wet – jump in! There’s the Games Room, Board Games galore and we’ll just move the marshmallow roasts to inside to the fireplace – we don’t skip a beat!
BUT a rainy day is also the perfect excuse to turn your attention from the beach to exploring our neighbourhood!
