Hotels [edit]

It is nessecary to book in advance during the holidays. The rest of time it's not a problem to find a room. The is an information box just in the port, so you may get detailed information on any aspects.

Most of the hotels are located near two main beaches (Hundred Step Beach and Thousand Step Beach) in the east of the island, so in most cases you won't have to look for a beach for a long time.
