Lundy Island

The unique island experience!

Lundy offers a very rare experience. It is large enough to have a genuine life of its own, which visitors can share and enjoy, but small and far enough away to be a world apart and unspoilt. Activities on Lundy range from the adventurous, such as rock climbing or diving in the Marine Nature Reserve, to the more gentle pursuits of birdwatching, walking, socialising at the Marisco Tavern or simply relaxing in this remote and tranquil place.

During the summer months (April to the end of October), the MS Oldenburg, carries visitors from Bideford or Illfracombe. Voted boat trip of the year in 2003 passengers enjoy breathtaking views of the North Devon coast.
