Scooter and Bicycle Rentals

Those visitors who might not be diving may prefer to rent a scooter, or even a bicycle, to get around. Although the island is small, using a bicycle can be daunting, especially in the tropical heat of the mid-day. Scooters can alleviate that worry, while still giving  convenience in getting around for grocery shopping, visiting restaurants, or just going to the beach.

If you do choose to rent a scooter, it will be necessary to produce a valid driver’s license (U.S., Canadian, and European licenses are all accepted), be at least 18 years of age and pay a deposit or use a credit card for security. An advance reservation is highly recommended, especially during holiday travel periods.

Once you have secured a scooter or bicycle, be sure to familiarize yourself with the traffic signs (a copy should be given to you) and the rules of the road. We drive on the right, the same as in the States and most of Europe.

Rental companies which offer scooters are located around the island, many are in convenient locations to hotels and resorts. Some will offer a pickup service if the rental period is of more than a day or two.
