About

When lunar forces combine to create dramatic Spring Tides, the channel between Tresco and Bryher is dry enough to cross between the islands on foot. Part way across is a long sandbar, usually under 20 feet of seawater. Never ones to pass up an opportunity for a shindig, we thought: that sounds like a good spot for a party!

Shortly before low tide, our Tresco and Hell Bay teams hop through the shallows to set up benches, a bar and firepits on the sandbar as the water recedes.

When the tide is low enough, people will begin making their way across from Tresco and Bryher, meeting in the middle to enjoy this totally unique Scillonian experience.

The Low Tide Experience may be a race against the tide, but there is always plenty to do in such a short space of time!

In 2023, the first Low Tide Event occurs on Thursday 20th April 2023.
