          Yes. Make sure you grab a map as the bike trails can get a little confusing. Keep in mind where the beach is located when you are biking and that will help you find your way back as well. Have fun!!

          There are no beach service fees for Sanctuary guests. For villa guests, they are $25/day or $100/week which includes two beach chairs, towels and umbrella.
