Acklins is a very remote island in the south with scheduled flights only on Saturdays and Wednesdays. Visitors normally choose Acklins for peace and quiet and fishing. But one of the best outdoor activities unique to the island is rambling, the process of hiking in the bush in search of the aromatic cascarilla tree, used for traditional medicine and commercial export. The sweet smell of this native shrub caught the attention of Christopher Columbus, who described Acklins as a fragrant island. Nature trails in Acklins will put you in contact with sweet-scented plants and flowering tropic foliage.
