Una isla de vibrantes contrastes, de escarpado y bello paisaje
Azotada por las olas del Atlántico en un lado pero delimitada por tranquilas playas arenosas en el otro, Bryher es una isla de dramáticos contrastes: el lugar ideal para conocer la verdadera esencia de las indómitas Sorlingas. Unas 80 personas tienen la suerte de tener aquí su hogar.
La fama de Bryher se extiende más allá de los confines del archipiélago: el lujoso hotel de Hell Bay ha sido reconocido con diversos galardones, y el chef Jamie Oliver ha dicho del diminuto pub de Fraggle Rock que es uno de los mejores bares de Gran Bretaña. Esta pequeña isla también fue el escenario de la película Cuando vuelvan las ballenas, basada en la novela de Michael Morpurgo inspirada en la isla. Samson Hill, en el extremo sur de la isla, es el lugar en el que se encontraba la casa del “hombre pájaro”.
Tanto si exploras sus calas rocosas, como si prefieres relajarte en una playa de arena blanca o subir hasta la cima de una las pequeñas colinas de granito para disfrutar de las vistas, Bryher transmite una maravillosa sensación de libertad y pureza. Puedes admirar las formaciones de granito en Shipman Head y, si estás dispuesto a sortear las rocas, durante la marea baja puedes acercarte hasta tocarlas; también puedes presenciar el romper de las grandes olas frente a Hell Bay (realmente especulares en invierno) o disfrutar de la calma y la tranquilidad de Rushy Bay con vistas a Samson.
La isla está recorrida por multitud de senderos que se entrecruzan en diversos puntos y salpicada de numerosos puestos en los que se venden productos locales como huevos de granja, verduras locales, marisco recién pescado y el fudge (un delicioso dulce) típico de la isla. El conjunto de establecimientos formado por la tienda de ultramarinos de Bryher, la tienda de avíos de pesca, los estudios de artistas locales y los astilleros en los que pueden alquilarse barcos y kayaks contribuye a enriquecer esos pequeños placeres que definen el encanto de Bryher.
