Lundy Island is a place that’s unlike any other, and it’s difficult to put a finger on just why it draws those who discover it back time after time. Just off the coast of North Devon, you can take day trips to the island from Ilfracombe, and as soon as you stem on to it you’ll feel a sense of tranquillity and as ready to explore its unspoilt landscape.
Clear seas surround the island and its views are incredible, if you’re content to amuse yourself and wander when somewhere new or just sit back and enjoy looking out to sea then you’ll be in your element on the island.
Lundy has a sense of nature and rugged beauty that can’t fail to strike you, and you’re likely to catch sight of seals, spectacular birdlife, Lundy ponies...and that’s just the wildlife! After a day spent discovering smuggler’s haunts and pirate’s coves in the famous home of the Lundy puffins the mainland will seem a world away.
