Discover | Lundy

Lundy is an ideal place to fish, with its East coast being designated as the first no take zone in the UK and a requirement to only take sustainable species from around the island.

For the more adventurous, we also discover the first marine conservation zone in Britain with ten recognised dive sites and an incredible abundance of wrecks for scuba divers to explore. Indeed, over 200 ships have floundered off of Lundy's coast and in years gone by it gained a turbulent history as a pirate lair.

Lundy also gives way to sixty cliff faces, rocks stacks, crags, caves and buttresses. An ideal location then for climbing. However, please respect that between March and July climbing is prohibited in order to protect bird nesting sites.

At 4pm. I went aboard the Oldenburg once again and waited for the remaining passengers to shuffle their way back on to deck. We set sail in calm conditions and began the two hour journey back to Ilfracombe.

You gain a good viewpoint of the coast on the return journey and on such a clear day, it's easy to make out the sandy beaches of Croyde, Saunton and around Baggy Point to Woolacombe. Then from Morte Point, the cove leading to the idyllic hamlet of Lee and the Torrs to Ilfracombe Harbour.


The experience is one I intend to repeat again, next time allowing for time to sample the local ale and food offered at the Marisco Tavern; a visit to Lundy seems somewhat incomplete without stepping inside.

I highly recommend a visit to Lundy aboard the MS Oldenburg, whether it's for a day trip, an extended stay in Lundy's holiday accommodation or camping.

Climb, dive, fish, or just trek the island. Observe the flora and fauna and take in the stunning scenery: I hope you experience Lundy for yourself, soon.
