Burgh Island South Devon is an iconic landmark on the coast, located directly opposite Bigbury on Sea beach, famed for its links to Agatha Christie, as well as a one time haunt for pirates and smugglers.
Separated from the mainland by a beautiful sandy tidal beach, Burgh Island is only accessible on foot across the beach at low tide, or via the unique sea tractor when the tide is high.
The area of Bigbury and Burgh Island is part of the South West Coast Path - and you can spend hours wandering along the stunning coastline just looking out to sea.
If you aren't lucky enough to be staying at the Burgh Island Hotel, you can still visit the island. Take a walk around the island and discover the unique wildlife that lives on its shores. Stop for lunch or dinner at either the Hotel or the Pilchard Inn.
