ASK THE EXPERTS

NEED ADVICE FOR YOUR NEXT TRIP? ARE YOU AFTER RECOMMENDATIONS, TIPS AND GUIDANCE? THE TRAVEL GEEKS HAVE THE ANSWERS…

Q // My husband and I are booking a trip to the Caribbean. He’s a fan of the beach, but I’d rather go hiking. Where should we go?

I’d recommend either Antigua or St Lucia, or pair both islands together for a two-centred trip. Antigua offers great walking trails for you, and an impressive 365 beaches for your husband. Hike up Boggy Peak (or Mount Obama as it was renamed in 2009), where there are panoramic views; take a wander around the historic English Harbour, or walk from Wallings Dam in the rainforest, down through a variety of different woodland to Rendezvous Bay, where you can enjoy a swim from a deserted beach. Sugar Ridge Resort is a great base for all the hikes, with the added benefit of a new yoga pavilion, where you can unwind after a day on the beach or trails. Then head to St Lucia, staying on the south of the island, where your husband can laze on the beach looking up at the Pitons while you climb them. I’d recommend staying at Anse Chastanet, as there are stunning beaches nearby and you can disappear up Mount Gimie, the highest point on the island, and cool off with a dip in a natural plunge pool fed by a waterfall. hikecaribbean.com

About National Geographic Traveller (UK)

This month, we ditch the jeep to discover Africa from a different perspective. Whether on foot, by boat or hot air balloon, we’re showcasing the continent’s wild side on an active safari across Kenya, Tanzania, Botswana and more. We go north of Hadrian’s Wall in Northumberland; discover Japan’s Tohoku region; and spend a long weekend in Vilnius. Other highlights this issue include Lima, Fife, Budapest, San Francisco and Turin, while our photo story unearths the tradition of gold panning in Costa Rica.
