It is claimed that this is where JFK crashed (on a nearby island) during WWII. It is the biggest city in the province and the only one with even rudimentary tourist infrastructure. So most people come here to dive. There are some banks here, and some acceptable restaurants. Fat Boys is the most popular but I did not go out there. The landing a take-off is one of the craziest I have done. You basically land on a neighboring island, that is exactly as long as it needs to be for a very small plane to take-off from. Fuel is hand pumped into the plane, and the pilot will sometimes false start a take-off if he does not have enough speed by mid-island. Do not lie about your weight when getting on. Ha ha.
