View Details

Burgh Island is an iconic South Devon landmark, located directly opposite Bigbury on Sea beach.

The island is accessible at low tide by a strip of sand which at high tide is completely covered, leaving a ride on the unique sea tractor as the only means of access.

As well as the sea tractor the island is famed for its links to Agatha Christie, the art-deco inspired hotel and as well as a one time haunt for pirates and smugglers.

The tidal passageway that separates the mainland from Burgh Island is a beautiful sandy beach which is ideal for lazy beach days and sand castle building whilst you admire views of the island. 

A walk around the island will let you explore the remains of the chapel or discover an abundance of wildlife that lives on its shores. If you fancy a break visit the Pilchard Inn on the shoreline for a fresh baguette or pint. 

Burgh Island sits just off the South West Coast Path and many hours can be spent wandering along the stunning coastline looking out to sea and back towards the Island.
