We walked down to the area with the cabanas and just laid around on the hammocks. There was nobody else around us, and we easily had our choice of lounge chair or hammock or playing in the sand/water.
Planning ahead, we took a small backback with boxes of cereal to munch on (from breakfast that morning), bottled water (brought from Fort Lauderdale), a good book, sunglasses, camera, beach ball and inflatable air mattresses (from home). After embarking on a Sunday, spending the next day on HMC started our vacation off just right!! I fetched lunch for the two of us later in the day, as the walk was not that far.
We had planned on HMC to be our "beach day" since we had other excursions planned at each of our other ports, and this was our only opportunity to be total beach bums. Sure wish I was back there now!!!
