Also, a few friends always host a Boxing Day party in a remote location somewhere on the island on Boxing Day. Location is only announced nearer to the day. Party starts around midday and all you need to do is pack a cooler of drinks and food, grab a few friends and enjoy the music supplied by the party hosts.
