The best way to get around is by bus. They are tiny and you do have to keep your nerve sometimes but they can be hilarious as there are some right old characters on there! The standard fee wherever you go is $1.50 ci dollars. They run very frequently up and down Seven Mile Beach and you just stick your hand out if you want to stop one. When you want to get off, shout "one stop" - this is what the locals shout and should you say anything else you feel like a right plum!
Taxis are hugely expensive and not worth their money. However there is one guy who thinks he is Elvis who has a taxi and plays Elvis constantly in the cab, not sure which firm he works for though...he is a hoot.
