St. Martin's

A voyage of discovery to the best beaches in the world

Crystal clear waters, idyllic beaches and a prevailing sense of calm make St. Martin's a delight. With its iconic red and white Daymark, erected in 1683 by Thomas Ekins, it is the first island you spot as you cross from the mainland. 

The island is just two miles long, yet it has some of the finest beaches in the British Isles, if not the world. Whether searching the rock pools in Lawrence’s Bay, or taking a dip in the water off the sweeping Par Beach or simply chilling on Bread and Cheese Cove, Great Bay or Little Bay, they all jostle for the accolade!  Additionally, the spectacular flowers, plant life, rare birds and sensational sea views along the heathery cliff path walks all add to the thrill of St. Martin’s unmistakable beauty. Exploring the islets of Nornour, Ganilly and Menawethan from St. Martin’s also allows you to spot colonies of seals not so far off shore.

Behind these beautiful scenes, there lies an enterprising and diverse community. The 120 or so inhabitants are industrious folk – there’s a flower farm and vineyard – both open to visitors, a fabulous dive school offering underwater adventures and snorkelling with seals, a locally-inspired silver jewellery designer, a flourishing bakery full of artisan breads and traditional, freshly-made savouries, a wonderful gallery showcasing local artists, a local store and various eateries offering sumptuous lunches, light snacks and cream teas.
