A rare experience is to be found on the beautiful and wild Lundy Island just 12 miles off the North Devon Coast in the Atlantic Ocean.
Surrounded by the UK’s first Marine Conservation Zone, the waters around Lundy Island are teeming with marine life, including seals and basking sharks.
This tiny granite island, just 3 miles long and ½ miles wide, has high rugged cliffs facing west to the Atlantic Ocean, and to the east a sheltered coastline, hanging valleys and grassy slopes, rich in plant and wildlife. The cliffs are home to important seabird colonies, including Puffins and Manx Shearwaters.
The island offers a rich and special experience for visitors, whether for walking, climbing, diving, bird-watching, or just finding peaceful corners to explore. Lundy makes for an inspiring day trip from the mainland aboard the MS Oldenburg.
For longer stays, there are properties to rent, a campsite and the infamous Marisco Tavern for refreshments and supplies.
