Cost guide :

$4 per pax for boat ride (to and fro, standard no children price)
$8 to $12 for full day bicycle rental (kids bicycle maybe $6)
$5 for a simple meal (noodle and drink for example) at the coffeeshop
mineral water and can drinks cost $1+ per bottle/can on the island, good to bring your own supply
local coconut (huge) $2 (maybe $2.50 ... forgot :p )
thai coconut (small and extremely sweet) $2.50

Food and drinks: buy there, or can bring sandwich for picnic, one or two apples in the bag is not a bad idea also (imagine all tired under the hot sun munching on a crunchy sweet apple, heehee)

loose fitting and well ventilated, T-shirt and berms will do
proper shoes please, bare minimum sandals

Others: Family welcome and encouraged :)

Most places are renting bikes for $3 / day now. Don't expect super duper bikes though.

Boat ride is only S$2 per pax (need to have 12 pax on the boat)
Bike rental is S$8 (whole day) -- so far, this is the best mountain bike available. The shop is opposite the row of other bike and coffee shops.

bike rental prices seem to have fluctuated much since i last went there, i don't know about the $3 bike, but i'll definitely not try that ;)
