Ascension Island Warnings and Dangers: 3 reviews and 7 photos
Ascension is approx eight degrees below the equator and as such the climate varies little all year, essentially you get sun and lots of it .. be sensible and wear sun screen. I slapped on loads of factor 30 and still got (slightly) burnt. One person in our party thought it would be clever to try it with cooking oil .. oh dear! Needless to say he got very red and very sore!
What they never warned us about in the Ascension Island information pack was the mosquitoes. They are particularly prevalent at Traveller's Hill and I got bitten to buggery by the little ----s!
