The beaches and waters here are second to none.....totally wowed. If you’re looking for that tropical beach with safe swimming and plenty of marine life, this is it.

When I went in Nov 2017 I did not see anywhere to hire bikes but then again I was not looking for them. So maybe but not that I was aware of. Hope this is helpful.

Yes there’s buses that will take you and you will be able to organise as soon as you get on shore. Can’t tell you how much but should find it to be fair and an easy process.
