Hiking tips

Here are some vitally important things to remember when you are underting any hiking in Barbados.


KEEP HYDRATED

  • Normally on any hot day we recommend one litre of water per person per hour.
  • There is NO substitute for fresh water, sugary drinks may have place in giving you extra energy but nothing can substute for water.

DRESS APPROPRIATELY

  • Wear a good pair of hiking boots or walking shoes with a tread.
  • When purchaseing walking boots get them half a size over your regular foot size.
  • Wear heavy duty socks and take an extra pair to ensure that your feet are kept dry.

CLOTHES

  • Barbados is hot and humid tropical island, and visitors can feel very overwhelmed in the heat. Wear loose fitting cloths.
  • Light coloured cotton fabrics are the most recommended for hikes in Barbados.
  • A hat is an essential part of the kit!
  • A stick may come in handy and a heavy duty pair of gardening gloves may be a good thing to put in your rucksack.

MEDICATION

  • Remember to take any medication that you are currently administered. If you are not sure check with your doctor as to your ability to endure a long hike.

ESSENTIAL ITEMS

  • Even if the weather is overcast, you are still capable of getting sunburn! SPF sunblock of 30 and over with both UVA and UVB protection is recommended.
  • Sunblock should be reapplied every four hours during the hike.
  • Spray a bug repellant before and during your hike.
  • Toilet paper
  • Towel
  • Wet wipes
  • Sunglasses
  • Binoculars
  • Camera
  • Cell phone
