How to Get Here
If you’re driving your car, get the Google direction, and Google will take you there.
Coming via UBER is also an easy way because all drivers know the place. However, it would help arrange with the driver to come back and pick you up after the certain hours you intend to stay and roam the island. Because it’s pretty not easy to make the booking only as the place is out of the city side.
