If you’re craving warm weather and sandy beaches, and looking to add some physical activity to your next island vacation than look no further than these six unbelievable island hikes.

1. Waitukubuli National Trail

The Caribbean island nation of Dominica, home to about 300 miles of trails, is known as “the Nature Isle.” Waitukubuli National Trail, the Caribbean’s first long distance walking trail, runs the entire length of the island and gives hikers a glimpse of all that the island has to offer.

The 115-mile trail is made up of 14 segments, and showcases the island’s 365 rivers, 12 waterfalls, lush rainforests, hot springs and the Morne Trois Pitons National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

      I guess walking on the street in the USA could get you killed either by a criminal thug or by the official guardians of the law, the Police.

      Instead of posting nasty comments about your own country if you are Dominican, why don’t you try to do something in your little corner to stop the growing criminal behaviour? For example when you hear people blaming everything and everybody under the sun for their misdeeds why don’t you encourage them to take responsibility rather than joining them and giving them comfort, if you do that at all? That just might reduce the criminal population by one.

      As for me and my house, we say, Long live DA! May God bless you richly our beautiful country!
