We walked off the ship, down the sidewalk about 20 minutes through town and settled on a beach area right off the main street. We were the only ones there and we saw parrots and lizards. It was great!

Take a taxi to the beach early morning. ( it is not so hot, nobody is there and the shops are closed anyway. ) Go to see the shops and restaurants after the beach.

For a fun day sign up for the Kukoo Kunuku Palm Beach Tour! Hope you get Carlos!!!! It is an open air bus & Carlos has you laughing, singing, & yelling out the open windows with music playing!!! He will tell you to get the best smoothie with "sugar" (code word for rum). This tour was a blast!!!!

Take a cab to Moomba Beach. It's part of the Palm Beach strip and really any beach along this streach is great.
