We were collected at our hotel by a super friendly bus driver. It was a rocky ride over on the ferry, as the sea was a bit choppy but we had a very enjoyable day and the ride back was super smooth. Again collected and returned to our hotel by our friendly bus driver. (Which is a great optional service).

We couldn’t hire a bike because my partner had one arm and they didn’t have anything else that we could go around the island with and your scooters weren’t allowed to go anywhere beyond put a point so we had to catch a bus and you couldn’t see much on the bus

We live in Perth but have rarely made it across to Rotto. What a fantastic experience! We picked an off season 23 degree day and loved it - the beaches, facilities, service. It was like being on a desert island. A day to truly “get away from it all”. Highly recommended.
