Many of the roads are not paved and there is minimal signage, thus there is a very non-commercial feeling to the island. All of the power and telephone lines are underground. You may find yourself totally alone on its white sand beaches and even renowned spots such as lovely Macaroni Beach remain tranquil and uncrowded.
English is the common language but due to an international scope of owners and guests, languages such as French, Italian, German and Dutch are often spoken.
