It's worth the trip to the Pelican bar - fun little bar on a sandbank so you can swim around while you have a red stripe. We hired a boat for US$70 near the Golden Sands hotel and took the 30-40 min trip. It was fun but quite choppy however coming home was quite scary and dangerous. Make sure it is a really calm day before you take this option. We found out later that you can drive down to a point and take a shorter boat trip out - our hotel was charging US$80 (for 2 pax). Have a few beers and a swim out there - fun way to spend a couple of hours.
