As the center of the Essequibo coast, the charming town of Anna Regina is the starting point for a variety of activities within the laid-back region. The scenic boat ride along the Essequibo river alone is worth the journey. Once there, Hot and Cold Lake (named for its simultaneous hot and cold undercurrents) is a quiet area where you can fish, swim and relax. Capoey Lake on the Capoey Amerindian Mission is also ideal for slinging a hammock. You can also catch a stunning view of the rice fields on the ride to Feather Beach, a favorite local swimming hole. In August, Lake Mainstay Resort hosts a regatta on its black-water lake and a party on its white sand. All of these destinations are easily accessible by bus or car from Anna Regina, but keep in mind that traveling to the coast and along the coast is difficult after sunset. 135 mi/217 km southwest of Georgetown
