St. Martin’s

Un viaggio alla scoperta delle spiagge più belle del mondo 

Acque cristalline, spiagge idilliache e una pace assoluta rendono St. Martin’s un vero gioiello. Con l’emblematico faro a strisce bianche e rosse di Daymark, eretto nel 1683 da Thomas Ekins, St. Martin’s è la prima isola che si scorge avvicinandosi dalla terraferma. 

L’isola, lunga poco più di tre chilometri, presenta alcune delle spiagge più belle della Gran Bretagna, se non del mondo. Che preferiate andare alla ricerca delle pozze di marea a Lawrence’s Bay, fare un bagno nelle acque dell’ampia spiaggia di Par Beach o semplicemente rilassarvi nelle baie di Bread and Cheese Cove, Great Bay o Little Bay, ognuno di questi luoghi è talmente bello che è quasi impossibile giudicare quale sia il migliore. Inoltre, lo spettacolo offerto dai fiori, le piante, gli uccelli rari e le viste sensazionali del mare lungo i sentieri cosparsi di erica sulle scogliere aggiunge un tocco in più alla bellezza inequivocabile di St. Martin’s. Da St. Martin’s si possono esplorare gli isolotti di Nornour, Ganilly e Menawethan in cui è possibile avvistare colonie di foche a poca distanza dalla riva. 

Sullo sfondo di questi incantevoli paesaggi vive una comunità intraprendente e diversificata. I circa 120 abitanti dell’isola sono persone laboriose: c’è un vivaio e un vigneto, entrambi aperti al pubblico; una fantastica scuola di immersioni che offre avventure sott’acqua e snorkeling con le foche; un disegnatore di gioielli in argento d’ispirazione locale; una rinomata panetteria che vende pane artigianale e altre prelibatezze tradizionali appena sfornate; e una magnifica galleria con opere di artisti del posto. 

Presso il negozio, il minimarket e l’ufficio postale di St. Martin’s i turisti possono acquistare tutto l’occorrente per una fantastica vacanza - è perfino possibile farsi consegnare la spesa in anticipo presso il proprio alloggio in ogni parte dell’isola. L’isola ospita anche una serie di ristorantini che offrono sontuosi pasti, snack leggeri o il tradizionale “cream tea”.

Fay Page – Open Studio

St. Martin's All year

We make jewellery that is worn across Scilly, the UK and beyond.

It all started twelve years ago with a silver shell range and we’ve grown each year and now have several ranges including fish, flowers, seeds and Scilly cowbells. We do lots of commission work from wedding and engagement rings to personalised pieces.

Our studio is a truly Scilly affair with lots of reclaimed island materials and local art being used in the design – the cabinets have even been made out of the timbers from an old boat.Read more »
