We were dropped off at the camping side of the island and did a trek out to the monoliths (limestone rock structures) and back to our camping site. Along the way we met several groups of hikers and one group of biologists, ornithologists and scientists who were tagging and tracking birds on the island. That was a cool addition to our hike!
It is a hike through partly wooded area as well as some beach walking. It is easier to walk in the forest as opposed to the beach. Careful of tide times !
