Rent a car??

Going to Jolly Beach in November and we are looking to rent a car for a day or two to explore the Island. Does anyone have any info or tips??

We stayed at Sugar Ridge, right down the road from Jolly Harbour. We rented a car for our 4 day stay. Driving was not too bad as we have driven on the left in other places. This gave us the freedom to drive over to the Atlantic side and Half Moon bay (gorgeous) and some other beaches on that side. We also took advantage of being able to dine out at night at the great places in the Bolans area. The beaches are great as well. Driving is the easy part, but the maps are not the greatest. We asked for directions quite a bit.

We stayed at a place south of Jolly Beach for 2 weeks and rented a car for the full period we were there. We had never driven in the Caribbean before, or on the "other" side of the road, but we drove all over the island (incl. St. John's on Christmas Eve) and got along fine. A good map is helpful as the roads are not very clearly marked. You also need to watch out for potholes and people and animals walking along the sides of the roads.

Definately looks like renting a car would be a fabulous opportunity to explore this lovely island! For sure will get some good maps and watch out for the wildlife and people strolling on the roads!
