Three miles long and half a mile wide Lundy Island lies 14 miles from Clovelly (under a hour sailing time aboard the Sally Port), a place of outstanding natural beauty. Designated a marine nature reserve, (the first in England) Lundy boasts a medieval castle, three lighthouses, an Inn and a church.
The wild-life consists of black rabbits, Lundy Ponies and of course its famous Puffins. Off-shore can be seen the gray seal all the year round and in the summer months dolphins, porpoises and basking sharks.
A natural fortress, a haunt of sea farers for centuries, a tempestuous history as a pirate lair, a grave yard for countless ships, the testimony of which lies in the 137 wrecks that still lie around its shores.
As part of a South West Coast Path walking tour, a day on Lundy is optional through Clovelly Charters but it does require spending two nights in Clovelly and is subject to the availability of sailings due to weather etc.
