Be very careful where you go swimming in the sea on Ascension, one of the main places to avoid is Long Beach, people do not going swimming there because the undertow is too dangerous. Generally people swim at the main beaches of English Bay and Comfortless Cove. Watch out for those under tows they can be very dangerous, and I know from experience as I almost lost my boyfriend to an incident like that, where he almost drowned.

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!
