An extraordinary boulder-strewn causeway crosses from St Martin’s to the tidal island of White Island. Once there you can follow a faint path around the coast to see the rarely visited ancient chambered cairns, prehistoric field systems and a dramatic geo called Chad Girt. The high point, 31 metres, at the north end of the island offers great views of the northern rocks of this archipelago.
There’s a very sheltered sandy beach at Porth Moran which makes for an excellent, secluded swim. If time permits, once back on St Martins, head north and scramble 500 metres across the tidal rocks to Pernagie Island.
