Trinkets, necklaces, touristy type gifts under $20, lots of sarongs and jewellery, also they sell hair braiding. There were coconut drinks, I didn’t see any food.

Yes. They are available for rent. Hop onto Facebook and look up “walking sun tours” I’m sure they have them. Send a message they will get back to you next day generally.
