Getting to Bonthe by public transport is relatively straight forward. From Bo, you first take the daily share-taxi/mini-bus to Mattru Jong, and then the next day take the regular transport boat out to the island. Onward travel to the Turtle Islands is sporadic, but possible.
There are no vehicles to speak of.
There are a couple of very basic hotels, the "Seaside Spot", which occupies the old Catholic mission near the water, and then a similar basic place further up towards the hospital. There is also "The Compound", a very posh fishing resort on the outskirts of town.
