  • Is there a shuttle available to get to the closest beach nearby? What are the other transportation options?

    No there are no shuttles. In fact there are no shuttles on the island for almost anything. What we strongly recommend is to rent a car - it can be a small one. With that you can visit everything and considering the alternatives like cab it is cheaper. There are buses, but they were established more for the locals so they connect villages and towns and not the view points and sites you might be interested on.

  • How can I get to the closest beach from the property?

    the closest point to swim in the Atlantic is called Negrito. It is a small bay (you can find it on the web) with a XVI century fortress at one side. It is about 2 km distant. That is where we go, when we have time.
