strictly necessary - I guess not.
but if you can afford it...
ask yourself: do I want to slog into town to catch a publico out to Flamenco? (the only one with reg. daylight service runs from the ferry to there, if it's not full you can hail it if you're in between but that's rare) and if I miss the last one, am I willing to cadge a ride or carry the phone numbers (and wait and pay) for the few that will provide taxi service? and the same for staying out after dark in town.
some like that kind of uncertainty and I like a certain degree, but to me time is money and the time on the beach is value-added. If I want to hike I can think of other places w/o a beach that I won't be missing.
it's not un-doable. but unless you're good at making quick friends or are willing to spend almost as much on transport as a daily jeep rate, you won't see some of the other beaches.
