While you peddle your way down the island airstrip you'll find two different nature trails to turn off the road at. Along the path you'll find fun some fun things to look at, like aircraft that have been overgrown by brush, cargo boxes which theme the water stations, and the bright blooms of multicolored bougainvillea. At the farthest points out the trail you'll be rewarded for your hard work with a spectacular island view from the observation tower, or a beachy panoramic of sparkling aquamarine waters. Completing both trails Guests will ride a distance of approximately 1.5 miles across flat, but sometimes bumpy terrain.

Be sure to read the warning signs posted along the trail that instruct you to stick to the trail and not touch the vegetation growing along the sides of the path. Poisonwood is a native plant here, and can cause severe skin irritation including pain, itching, and blisters. However, if you heed the warning you should be fine.

We rented our bikes online prior to embarkation, and when we arrived in our stateroom on the first night of our cruise we had a tickets waiting for us to turn in at the Bike Rental counter at the far end of the family beach.

The cost for bicycle rental for both adults and children is $10.75 per hour. Riders must be ambulatory and 3 or up, bike seats are available for the wee ones.
