"I’ve spent over 2 months on the island and never felt unsafe. As always, the best way to stay safe is to always be with at least one other person if you go out late at night. That being said, during the day and around the rest of the island it's very safe and I would not be scared to walk there alone as a solo traveler."
Josefine Kraemer, creator of Red White Adventures
