Little Corn Island Hikes and Walks
Little Corn Island is a very walkable island… it has to be, as there are no motorized or internal combustion engine vehicles allowed on the island! That means no cars, motorcycles, mopeds, or golf carts and none of the noise and distraction associated with these modern day conveniences. Even if there were a motorized vehicle on the island, it wouldn’t get very far as there are only small paved foot paths (“streets”) around the main town. A labyrinth of sand or dirt trails (which can be muddy during rain) run throughout the rest of the island.
This tiny tropical island is only about 1.5 square miles in size, which means you can walk or hike around the island in a few short magical hours. For those that enjoy a nice leisurely walk or hike, we suggest checking out a few different beaches (like Otto Beach, Goat Beach and Gun Point). Be sure to hike through the jungle to the old lighthouse tower (turn up hill at the Lighthouse Hotel) for some great 360 degree views or just meander through the village, to the baseball field and beyond.
Little Corn Beach and Bungalow is located on the east side of the island which makes it a great spot to walk along a string of open and deserted beaches. During high tide, there may be a few spots that can be a challenge to traverse but there is usually access to a foot path or trail nearby. You will definitely want to sip a Frozen Margarita or Pina Colada and checkout the map of the island above the Turned Turtle Restaurant bar before starting your island adventure.
Bring your favorite, most comfortable pair of flip flops (“slippers”) to fit right in and help you navigate the more rocky or rough parts of your walk about your own private remote tropical island.
