We suggest the following:
1. Wear good hiking shoes or runners, or in the summer, good hiking sandals.
2. Come prepared with a cell phone (although cell phone access is spotty on the island), a sweater and rain cover if the weather looks at all doubtful. Carry a snack and water. A hat is advisable in the summer, plus mosquito protection and sunscreen. In the winter, wear a good fleece, gloves and a tuque.
3. Dogs must be leashed on most trails and beaches.
4. This island is not flat, so most walks include hills, some steeper than others. This means that during rainy periods or immediately after, some of the steep trails become waterfalls!
