The most beautiful views from the top! It starts of as a fairly steady climb and then it does turn slightly steep with all loose rock under foot. Once you get past that you can start to see the views of the Islands and reefs....More

The views at the top were stunning and the climb itself a good workout. My one recommendation would be to go really early in the day during the summer months. We started our ascent at 8:20 am and it was 28 degrees by the time...More

If you are heading to Isle of Pines on a cruise port day, there is more to see than the marine life. Take the main road away from the ship, turn right at the intersection for about 200m before seeing the sign toPic N'GA that...More

A pleasant hike to end the day and watch the sunset. We had to come back down before the sun dipped completely as the ground is rough. Easy hike.

This hike takes about 45 min and starts in the forest following a stream. Was quite muddy in parts at the start before the climb begins. Then it is generally rocky with some loose surfaces . Great views from the top of Kuto Bay and...More

I'm not a very fit guy, and I managed this walk just fine (although with quite a lot of sweating). It gets very steep at times, and would be slippery in the wet, so wear closed toes shoes. It is also quite exposed, so make...More

We did not trek to this Lookout… we took part of a 2 Hour Island Bus Tour (8 stops $20.00AUD). Had we walked, I’m sure it would have straightened out our sea legs? A pleasant short first stop overlooking the surrounds and vegetation of the...More

We climbed Pic N'Ga, 4 km round trip, great views of the boat and surrounding reefs and islands, but very rocky and slippery so wear runners. Kids walked it no problem. We could've climbed another 20 metres for an even better view so look around...More

A bit of a hard slog, especially if the weather is hot, but can be done by a family that includes a whining 11 year old daughter if you carry her backpack and threaten to leave her to walk back to the ship by herself...More
