Due to the small size of the island, there is little to do here but shop, eat, lounge on the beach, or do a small scenic tour of Avalon by Golf cart. There is a botanical garden here, which we skipped due to having our own fabulous gardens in Phoenix. For avid explorers and lovers of the sea, there is kayaking and canoing, snorkeling, diving, as well as glass bottom boat tours. I was very disappointed to find out that we could not leave Avalon with our golf cart, and venture to other parts of the island. in addition, we were saddened by the fact that there was no motor scooter rental available - an amenity which we thoroughly enjoyed while visiting Isla Mujeres in Mexico this year. So, we cruised the winding road to the top of the small mountain in Avalon, which afforded incredible views of the bay and the town below. we zipped through the streets as fast as our golf cart would take us, and then we strolled along the beach - past the lighthouse and casino to the popular beach to sunbathe, sip pina coladas, and read. If i had had my way, i would have taken that cart around the entire island, and tried to discover where the magic buffalo were hidden. Apparently, they reside somewhere in the heart of the island.
