Underground electrical cables and high speed internet with good cell phone coverage rounds out the utilities list.

There is a 30 meter shallow walk (one to two foot depth, depending on tide) out to the reefs' edge drop off of a gentle five feet. The reef runs parallel the entire length in front of the property protecting it from the sea. The shallow seabed out to the reef edge consists of a sandy grassy bottom strewn with coral break-offs. There is a perfect upgrade of a possible extended pier out to the reef's edge starting with an already in place boat ramp for those water sport enthusiasts.
