Banana Beach was easy to access. Free bus to and from the beach from the main road was perfect for those who didn't want to walk. The beach is an organized beach has sand. Lounge chairs and drinks very reasonable as well.

Only on foot down a new bendy road obviously built for access to the new hotel. Barrier to prevent traffic but hotel guests are ferried up and down by buggy. Beach bar very expensive and lots of wasps.

Sorry John 1) for the late reply 2) for not knowing the answer. I walked the mile or so to this beach and didn't use the bus. I too was there in September.
