The island is best known for its seemingly endless beaches. Pink Sand Beach, so named for the powdery pink sand found on the beaches, is seventeen miles of still undeveloped beach front with crystal clear water. In one of Conde Nast Traveler issues, Pink Sand Beach, was named one of the ten best beaches in the Caribbean.
There is plenty to explore on a bike excursion; from the caves of Two Foot Bay, which provide shelter while wrapping around the north side of the island to exploring the interior finding the Coco Point Well to fill water bottles during a break.
Visitors can rent a Trek bike with or without suspension. There are also guided tours that can take you anywhere on the island. When you arrive at your secluded beach destination, sleep under the stars in a large or small Eastern Mountain tent. If camping is not your style, make a reservation with one of the hotels or villas on the island.
