Mangrove Forest Trek

3 1

Unfortunately, the sign faces the road at a 90 degree angle meaning it is hard to see as you zoom along the road.

Operated by the forestry department, this kilometre-long modern boardwalk winds its way through the mangrove forest to the ocean and loops its way back to the road again. And that’s it really.

Along the way you’re likely to see a range of birdlife and the odd lizard plus quite a lot of rubbish. It’s certainly worth a stop if you’re cruising around the island, but not worth going out of your way to visit.
