Book Description

“Amblers, hikers, beachcombers, power walkers, and anyone who likes to experience the Caribbean with their feet: this book’s for you.” Caribbean Travel & Life
“Writing as though he is offering advice to old friends, Adkins has unveiled the splendors of foot exploration on the islands.” Backpacker magazine
"Keep this if you already own it; or try to purchase the guide wherever you can find it." Library Journal

This new edition has been fully updated to bring you the very latest information on hiking trails on Anguilla, Antigua, Dominica, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Nevis, Saba, Statia and the Virgin Islands. From easy walks along sandy beaches to rugged overnight hikes to quick uphill treks with stunning vistas en route, this pocket-size guide has something to suit every member of your family. Walking times for each hike are given, along with descriptions of the route. Points of interest are highlighted, including plant and animal life you might see. An introduction to each island offers tidbits of the island's history, tourist information offices, air travel details and hiking organizations you can contact ahead of time. Maps throughout of all islands.This unique guidebook covers every aspect of exploring these islands on foot. And conditions have never been better for Caribbean-bound walkers and hikers. The tiny island of Saba has rebuilt the hand-carved step-trails that were once the only link between the island’s four villages. Dominica has upgraded a network of trails through rugged mountains into areas with active volcanoes and cascading waterfalls. Excursions range from one-hour town and beach walks to strenuous hikes that require the services of a local guide. So, whether you prefer to take in the historical sites, marketplaces and Dutch buildings in Philipsburg or would rather work up a sweat on the Victor Hugues Trail (8 hours, one way) on Guadeloupe, you’ll find something to suit your tastes.
