Great trip over on the amphibious vehicle. Island was interesting - could make the set of an awesome film! Loved the acoustics in the little chapel.

The boat ride over to the island is great fun. You have to book your tickets on the harbour front and they will tell you where the boat leaves from as this depends on the tide. The island is great for walking, climb the tower as it is not too far up and the view is wonderful. Don't miss the... More

We have been coming to the music festival for several years and we never tire of the walk/paddle to the island. Seats in the tent are not allocated - so the earlier you arrive the better seat you get ... but the wetter you get on the way over. You can buy a beer at the concert venue but, otherwise,... More

this is a really interesting island with a fascinating museum and garden. The version of the battle against the Brits is unsurprisingly different to the others recorded elsewhere. The little cafe does very good oysters.

When the tide is low you can walk acros the bay, but when tide rises - there's amphibious vehicle at a hand, to take you to the island. Unfortunately, biggest inconvienence here is that this boat/bus machine departures from the south tip of the marina, when tickets... More

We went with our 2 kids (3 and 5) at a great low tide, whilst the music festival was on during this summer. Lovely walk, too deep in places for the kids and we had to carry which was fine. It was a lovely hot day, and we'd have loved to have bought some refreshments after our long hot walk.... More
