09 Jun 2015

Travel Type:
With friends / other travellers

Trip Type:
Beach / sunbathing City break Relaxation / spa Sports, adventure or outdoor activities

Customer Travel Tip: Always carry your luggage yourself if you don't want to end up tipping anyone. If you don't want to be pestered by vendors asking you to book water activities with them, wear sunglasses so nobody will try to make eye contact with you (haha). People there are generally friendly, but be firm when you need to.

Liked: The white beach is quite possibly one of the best beaches I've been to.

Disliked: Not a fan of the tipping culture there - but i think it has to do with the fact that I'm not accustomed to tipping from where I come from.
