I was not overly thrilled with some of the walks but did really like the easy walk out to Little Island. It would be perfect for less mobile people or families with young children. Nice views too!

The walking trails on LHI are rated and described on the map you are given on arrival. You definitely need good comfortable walking shoes and follow the guide on the maps. We found the walk from Malabar Hill to Ned's beach wasn't well marked out....More

Well marked and graded tracks across island. Gentle through to challenging. Maps obtained from tourist sites ( museum). Very safe island. Can ride hire bikes to start of walk and simply leave there unlocked.

We did several of the walks available and they ranged from simple, casual strolls to mountain goat types. All offer something different, but all were wonderful. What a great adventure. Take proper boots to protect your ankles

The Island has a multitude of great walks that are very accessible, well signposted, and maintained. Use the fold out green map or purchase the rambles book.

Self guided walks around the island are a great way to see everything. Clif top walks involve a lot of steps. The fitter you are the better.

Boots would be best but unless climbing Gower or the Goat House. Sneakers would be fine.

We've ever had any issue with leeches in our many visits to LHI.
