There is so much to see on this island,
but it’s not all in one place.
The main roads here are quite good,
the off roads less so.
A four wheel drive Jeep type vehicle is ideal,
though not absolutely necessary.
There are many viewpoints and special little nooks
and crannies along the coast and in the hills.

If there is something special that you would like
to experience, or need to know and you don’t see it
