You want to spend time at the beach? Gold Rock is the best beach on the island. My family visited this beach and we did NOT want to leave.

Pack a lunch and bring sunscreen and bug spray but this place is worth hanging out for a while very Scenic and it was the sight of where they film the Pirates of Caribbean movie

We rented a car for the day for 92 dollars and was able to explore on our own without being tied to a tour guide. If you can brave driving on the left side of the road and round abouts then you're golden.
