St Helena is a hiker’s paradise, with a collection of 21 Post Box walks, and many footpaths. Because of its rugged landscape, many of the walks are recommended for experienced hikers, however, the footpaths are well suited for families and children. The Post Box walks are named such because of the post boxes at the end containing a note book for hikers to write their comments, and a stamp for them to record their achievement as a souvenir.
The hikes range between 1.5-12km, and are a great way to see the island. The marine life and wrecks found around St Helena makes it an ideal location for both divers and snorkelers. The diving conditions are suitable for advanced and beginner divers, with warmer sea temperatures and visibility up to 40m.
