Bryher

A rugged yet deeply beautiful island of vibrant contrasts

Pounded by Atlantic waves on one side, yet blessed with calm sandy beaches on the other, Bryher is an island of dramatic contrast - the perfect place to enjoy a taste of untamed Scilly. Around 80 people are lucky enough to call it home.

Bryher's fame extends far beyond Scilly's shores: the luxurious Hell Bay hotel has won many an award, while Jamie Oliver has hailed the diminutive Fraggle Rock Bar as one of Britain's best "boozers". The little island is also the setting of the film, "When the Whales Came", based on Michael Morpurgo's novel inspired by the island. Samson Hill on the southern end of the island was the site of the birdman's cottage.

Whether you're exploring rocky coves, lazing on white sandy beaches or hiking up one of its small granite hills for some great views, Bryher serves up a wonderful sense of freedom and purity. You can admire the granite stacks on Shipman Head - and get up close at low tide if you're happy to scramble the rocks; you can watch the Atlantic rollers thunder into Hell Bay (spectacular in winter!), and you can enjoy the calm and tranquillity of Rushy Bay overlooking Samson.

The entire island is criss-crossed by tracks and dotted with stalls selling fresh produce including farm eggs, local vegetables, freshly-landed seafood and mouth-watering island fudge.

The Bryher Shop is an excellent spot to purchase tasty treats such a tatty cake and freshly made bread as well as everything they need for a great holiday which, on request, can even be delivered in advance to your accommodation.

Bennett's Boatyard and Bryher Boatyard offer boats and kayaks for hire, and you can get supplies from the island chandlery.

There are also a number of eateries, including the Hell Bay Hotel and Fraggle Rock offering sumptuous lunches and suppers, light snacks and cream teas.
