Bryher

If you like dramatic sea landscapes and rolling hillsides, you’ll love Bryher. Bryher is the smallest of the inhabited islands and is renowned for its natural, rugged beauty. The western side, including the notorious Hell Bay, has been whipped into shape over time by the relentless Atlantic Ocean.

Shipman Head, to the north, is separated from the main body of Bryher by a narrow sea channel. It is a bird sanctuary and accessible only to the most adventurous during a low tide.

Watch Hill, located towards the middle of Bryher, is the highest point on Scilly and affords fabulous views back across the other islands. To the south, the clear waters of Rushy Bay are fine for sunbathing and swimming.

Bryher is the home and inspiration to local artist Richard Pearce and producers of homemade goods, like Veronica Farm fudge and the numerous fresh fruit and veg stalls. Places to eat and drink on Bryher include Vine Cafe, Fraggle Rock Bar & Cafe and the Hell Bay Hotel. A day spent on Bryher really is a day getting away from it all.
