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 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
