I've been over to Lundy quite a few times, and it always enchants me. I endorse all the other reviews, but would add a couple of points.
Lundy stands in the middle of a Marine Reserve, and the diving around the island is superb. Numerous wrecks in various states, and the famous H.M.S. Montague off the southern shore. Lobsters abound in the protected waters, and seals often play hide and seek with scuba divers. I won't go into ways to access diving on this site, because divers will know how are where to find out relevant information.
My other point is the looming dread of the Atlantic Array. It is proposed to build an enormous field of the worlds largest wind turbines to the west of the island. The planners appear to think that, being offshore, and hidden behind Lundy, no one will mind or object! The westerly views from the island will, of course, be ruined, but after all, it's in the interests of "progress". It is most interesting to note that these highly inefficient (but highly subsidised) turbines are being deployed in one of the worlds ideal locations for wave and tidal energy.....
