About Us

Hi I’m Lisa. Welcome to Islandeering I’m an islandeer, author and marine conservationist and passionate about sharing what I have learnt from my travels around the islands of the British Isles to help you find an adventure. I started the project 12 years ago after I had one of those light bulb moments and realised the pure magic that islands held for me. After meeting so many people on their island travels who shared my passion and told me that I must share my experiences so that others could do the same I set up Islandeering.com, where we are passionate about promoting responsible travel to our great British islands.

    The circular walking route around Tean is a wonderful way to explore the history, landscapes and wild flowers that this island has to offer.

    The circular walk around Tean starts at the landing beach between Crump Island and Clodgie Point and continues clockwise around the island. Follow the sands of East and West Porth, with the remains of a Chapel in between, then continue on the more rugged and free-range route around the west tip. Cross Black Porth beach and continue around the north coast at the base of Great Hill, and then along the foreshore
