St Agnes and the adjoining island of Gugh are beautiful and unspoilt, designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The most south-westerly of the Isles of Scilly, the island is only one mile across so the many carns and coves can be explored on foot.
St Agnes may be small, but we all know that good things come in small packages! Whether you are staying one week or three, there are plenty of things to do and see. If you love the outdoors and adventure, this island has a rugged, natural landscape to explore. The clear waters are perfect for snorkelling, kayaking, fishing and swimming, and the beaches have beautiful white sand and are great for rock-pooling or just sitting and watching the ocean.
During a summer stay of a week or longer on St Agnes, you will get the opportunity to take boat trips around Scilly. You can explore all of the other inhabited islands, take fishing trips or wildlife boat tours.
St Agnes is an important place for wildlife - particularly sea birds. The island is rat-free and hence a haven for Manx Shearwaters, Kittiwakes, Storm Petrels and other rare birds.
