These amazing (and totally eco) island activities are as nourishing for the planet as they are for you
Treat a Budding Nature Lover in Turks and Caicos
It’s never too early to teach your kids how to protect the world. Perched on the shores of an 18,000-acre nature reserve on Providenciales, Turks and Caicos, the luxurious Amanyara resort invites families to explore the island’s land and marine life together, while staying in one of its plush pavilions. Children can visit the Nature Discovery Center to learn about the archipelago’s ecosystems or take part in underwater GoPro photography expeditions.
Feed Endangered Iguanas in the Bahamas
If you’re an animal lover looking for a once-in-a-lifetime experience, take a trip to Bitter Guana Cay with Bahamas Air Tours. Known locally as Iguana Island, this tropical paradise is home to an endangered species of Bahamian Rock Iguanas. Link up with them at the protected Rock Iguana Beach at the northern end of the Bahamas’ Exuma Cays, where you’ll make many a cold-blooded buddy, provided you bring along their favorite food: grapes. The trip makes for some unforgettable photos, so make sure you’re looking your best with a pair of chic Zenni frames.
Book a Sustainable Stay on the Big Island
You’ll sleep soundly at SCP Hilo Hotel knowing your holiday digs genuinely care about the planet. Newly opened on The Big Island, the sustainable property combines thoughtfully designed, environmentally friendly stays with a big slice of that famous Hawaiian hospitality. Nestled at the southern end of the Hamakua Coast, the hotel is perfectly placed to explore the local farmers’ markets, the stunning Akaka Falls and the peaceful Lili’uokalani Park and Gardens.
