Things to Do & See

Whether you're looking for the ultimate relaxing beauty spot or a place to get active, Lundy Island is where to head. Escape the bustle of the mainland and enjoy a host of activities on the island including sailing and boat charter, canoeing, diving, climbing and walking with a choice of wildlife and seabird walks on the island. Guided walks are available all year round, Rocky Shore Rambles are from Easter to October, Lundy evening slide talks are all year round and snorkelling safaris are available June to September. Lund-ey is the Norse word for Puffin and you will see plenty of Puffins and Manx Shearwaters on Lundy's rugged west cliff coast, along with many other seabird colonies around Jenny's Cove including Razorbills, Fulmars and Guillemots. The waters around Lundy are also home to a large Atlantic Grey seal colonies - spot them hauled up on the island's rocks and in the water.

There are three lighthouses on Lundy and other historic buildings including a 13th century medieval castle, an old Georgian gentleman's residence and a cosy fisherman's chalet. The island was also once a popular haunt of pirates! There's plenty for divers to explore around the 137 shipwreck sites off Lundy Island - The Lundy Marine Reserve to the south west of the island is particularly popular with divers. The east side of the island is where to spot interesting plants, whilst the west has the more dramatic landscape.
