Great customer service! Very helpful. Take note that not too many stores are open on Sundays. But, the Lady at the Customer service showed us the map were we can spend our time around the Island.

We usually don't go into visitor centres but we did on this trip and we are so glad we did. They helped us to find things that are not found on the internet and everyone was super friendly!

Plenty of pamphlets for accommodation although we were day trippers. The staff were very helpful showing us things to do for an afternoon on the island. Well worth a visit.
