My husband and I are staying at the GPB for 2 weeks on Feb 13. We can't wait! (thanks to all who take the time to post on this site - it is tremendously helpful!)
I gather that the GPB is pretty isolated. We love the beach and desperately need som R&R, but we are also the type to really get out and explore the island, and are wondering if there is anything nearby that we can walk to (shops, restaurants, etc.) and what our options are for getting around the island while staying at the GBP - in other words, are local buses readily accessible near the hotel? How much to rent a taxi for the day to take in some of the sights/beaches - and does anyone know a reliable driver? What are everyone's thoughts on renting a car - we drive on the other side of the road here! Lastly, with the appropriate mode of transportation nailed down, are there any "must-do/see" sights/beaches/activities/shopping that we should really take in? (Aside from Shirley's Heights - there seems to be an abundance of information out there about it).
Realize this is a loaded question, but appreciate any snipits of info that people are willing to share!
Many thanks. s
