The Island is a paradise for nature lovers seeking to reconnect with the great outdoors. Find the only rainforest in the national U.S. Forest System and one of the world's most extensive dry forests, with hundreds of underground caves and more. Ride the waves in a renowned surfing reserve or lounge by a pristine, unspoiled beach part of the nearly 300 miles of coastline. Hike up the mountains to find lakes, rivers, waterfalls, or kayaks and swim around three of the world's five bioluminescent bays.
