ISLAND WALKS AND PATHS
There is a natural trail halfway up that goes around the entire island, with stone pathways leading down to all the beaches. The beaches are a mix of sandy and/or small stones. The larger back beach is free of any major buildings, open to the ocean and during low tide makes for a beautiful and scenic walk along its shores.
SALTWATER ROCK POOLS AND BEACHES
Iris Island offers 3 saltwater rock pools that are enclosed by stone walls, allowing protected swimming areas. The front beach is surrounded by a stone wall which during high tide fills with seawater and becomes a gigantic swimming pool over 120 meters in length.
On the back side of the island, there is a beautiful natural beach with small stones and access to a beautiful reef. Excellent for bathing or snorkeling.

Iris Island Resort is the only island resort in the world that cooks their food predominantly using just the sun. Abiding by our sincere eco commitment to reduce the use of fossil fuels, we have incorporated and installed special solar ovens and solar cookers on the roof of our restaurant kitchen.
Sample our solar cooking in our clifftop restaurant. We try to cook as much as possible using these solar ovens. These fantastic appliances utilize only the sun for cooking. This method is not only healthier but many see foods cooked by the sun as full of healing energy or “prana”
