Have to agree with Host Kewlguy, that the waiting times (for bus #22) are exaggerated, In practice, the bus runs at least once every 30 min (sometimes more often). Your waiting time is simply a matter of luck, but suffice it to say that you will save a substantial amount of money using the bus to Darkwood. If you prefer to save a few minutes and do not mind spending the extra dollars...simply grab a taxi (there are plenty) at the port.
As to Darkwood (Kewlguy and I have been visiting this beach for many years), based on our most recent visit (early December) our once quiet beach has been discovered! These days, if the weather is good, you will find a pretty good crowd on Darkwood by late morning. They do work hard to handle all comers (just ask "Too Tall" for help) and the beach is still gorgeous.
As to going to the bus station, it is a relatively easy 10 min walk. Once you walk into town (from the main port entrance) just turn right on the first main street (about 2 blocks from the port) and start walking (and enjoying) through town. In a few blocks you will come to a slight split in the streets where you should stick to the road that veers slightly to the right (if you take the other road it will take you a couple of blocks out of your way). You will quickly reach the bus station (on your right). As you walk, if you have any doubts..simply ask any of the locals to point you to the bus station. Folks are generally very friendly and helpful on the island.
