The second is to rent a moped, but most people agree this can be very dangerous to visitors unaccustomed to local traffic. The third is to rent a car -- this is the best method if you intend to explore the south or east of the island. People generally walk to destinations within town and ride or drive to the outlying areas where the hotels and beaches are.
Savvy visitors can avoid high taxi prices and the monotony of walking everywhere by renting a bycycle. There are many options available, from single-speed cruises to 21 speed mountain bikes.
