An authentic experience tripping round the island in these old girls. The drivers are always friendly and helpful and it a good way to first experience all the Island has to offer.

There is a clockwise and anticlockwise bus that runs around the island. It is a great way to get around on a budget. You can purchase single tickets, return tickets or a multi ticket. There are plenty of bus stops along the main road around...More

It's cheap enough to get around but comes once an hour which is a bit of a shame. The good thing is they can stop and you can get on wherever. The annoying thing is you have to pay for luggage which no one ever...More

There are only two types of buses - anti clockwise and clockwise so you'll never get lost! You can pretty much wave them down anywhere and the bus drivers are very friendly! The only downside is the bus fare being too expensive $5 a ride,...More

If you’re going to use the bus a bit get a concession card $30 for 10 trips. Easy to use island style bus. Some of the drivers are so funny. A good option if you need a sober driver 😂

Lots of fun. Just remember the anti-clockwise stops at 4.30pm. We didnt know this, but the driver going the other way still stopped and picked us up. It just meant we had to go 3/4 of the way around and not 1/4. Who cares?

I would strongly suggest you book accommodation first. Most places offer a shuttle from the airport to the hotel/resort. If not, there are many taxis available at the airport.
