Getting Around

The roads are narrow and the rental cars are older, less-than-perfect models, so you can't speed down the highway. Besides, there is no highway. The main road, which runs north to south, one lane in each direction, offers many unspoiled, breathtaking views of the ocean.

Cars can be rented by the week or the day; they're $50 to $70 a day. If you want to explore the 110-mile-long island, you'll need a car, but if you want to just relax at Pink Sand Cottage, you may prefer daily car rentals for occasional sightseeing, dining out, and grocery-store runs.
