You can catch a cab outside of your resort for about 5 USD and have them drop you off at Doctors Cove Beach. It costs 6 to get in to the beach included in the price of the tour, and 6 to rent a chair and another 6 to rent an umbrella not included in the price of the tour. From there, they tell you to walk from the beach to Margaritaville, as everything in between is the hip strip. They then pick you up from Margaritaville at a predetermined time. Then you could catch another cab for 5 back to your hotel note: Only pick the cabs that have red license plates. You can do this on your own far cheaper than booking this excursion!
Perfect excursion. Doctor's Cave Beach was beautiful and not crowded at all. Our driver informed us we picked a good day because no cruise ships were in port. We ended up staying longer at the beach, skipped the shopping and totally enjoyed lunch and festivities at Margaritaville. Mary H P
