We parked before the causeway and walked over, it was simply breathtaking, but a long way. As we were so early, an hour before the chart said the causeway was passable, there was virtually no traffic and it was very safe. Bear in mind you walk all the way in, around the town etc, and then back again. We covered 15 miles and it was fantastic. The town itself was very nice, the toilets pretty bad, they had one way systems in place but were dirty and no hot water and the soap was empty. And this was 1st thing. As we were leaving at about 1pm it was absolutely packed, so get there early, it is worth it. Stunning scenery and amazing, deserted beaches that go on for miles.

A beautiful place to visit at different times of the day, dependant on the tides. We saw numerous birds including curlew, gulls, later catchers, redshank, etc etc. The reflections and different natural lights give an amazing sense of drama, very atmospheric. Especially enjoyed a early evening visit.

Hi what a beautiful Ireland. Me and my family walked alot around this place. It's beautiful. But of cause couldn't get in the castle or the Lindisfarne priory. I now you have got to book in advance. Because of the coronvisus. But we where not sure of the tide time and the weather when we where there wasn't brilliant. So really we where lucky to get on the Ireland. But would of loved to off seen the castle. So was a bit disappointed about that. The gift shop is very good for food and buying gifts, it supports the lrland too. The stalls where a nice treat waking down to the shop. I brought bread and honey candles and the people that served you where friendly and helpful with you. Thank you for a lovely day out 😎👍❤️

Absolutely brilliant day out. Great friendly community. Can buy homemade bun, cakes, honey, fruit and various of spreads. Plenty of views and areas to walk. No problem leaving prams on one side and come back for it. Best to take a picnic and be aware of tide times. Best to park in car park as a first time visitor like we did. Gets busier as the day goes on.

Tons of day trippers visit Lindisfarne and they think they have seen it all after the see the castle. However, the nature reserve is the real attraction, but luckily most visitors don't seem to notice. My husband and I just finished a 10 day holiday at Lindisfarne, and the nature reserve was the best part. We stumbled upon it our second day and then walked it every other day of our stay. We love the sea and beaches and we both agree the beaches on the nature preserve are some of the prettiest, if not the prettiest we've seen.
