Great place to rent an e-bike, bike, or golf carts. They have a location within a mile from property, but also deliver. Our personal favorite for sightseeing. Why sit in traffic when you can get front row parking on the island with your bike/e-bike? We went from property to tip of Island and down to Long Boat all in an afternoons ride.

If you get here early this is a FANTASTIC coffee/breakfast joint and they have an amazing gift shop. We love getting a coffee and walking out on the tip of the island aka Bean Point, but know that it can be touch to find parking if you wait too long to go.
