Less populated than the mainland, across the footbridge. Nice clear water for swimming. Sandy. Good fishing. Top spot for a picnic. Safe for children. Beautiful sunsets.

This would have to be the cheapest island escape in the country, in fact it's completely free! Well, ok, its really a glorified sandbank with a bit of vegetation and a couple of buildings including yacht club and toilets. But a beautiful natural environment nonetheless....More

The kids like too go there to fish either off the back of the island or off the bridge. Not a lot on the island which is part of its charm. Decent toilet facilities are there and a couple of handy shops as you leave.
