Each walk involves a little effort but is rewarded with a lovely view. I found Mutton Bird Point Lookout the most interesting and Goat House Cave the most challenging, but if you can climb up there then you are fit enough for Mt.Gower!

I did a number of walks but not all of them. (you have to leave something for next time). The walks on the Island are well maintained and signposted with facilities such as BBQs, toilets and seats all around the Island. The walks are amazing!...More

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

Being a small island there'll be changes in the weather within a day. It can shower on & off then be sunny. If it's windy on one side or one end then it will be better on the other side. A spray-jacket is useful. Quoting... More
