St. Agnes is on the most south-westerly edge of the Isles of Scilly. It is totally unspoilt and very peaceful. It is about 1.5km or so wide, and its closest neighbour is Gugh, to which it is joined by a sand bar at low tide.
St Agnes is an island of wonderful contrasts, from rocky outcrops on its exposed west side to lovely beaches in its more sheltered coves; the tranquillity of the sandbar between St. Agnes and Gugh is particularly magical. There are quaint cottages and a patchwork of flower fields, while a lighthouse stands at the island’s highest point and a thriving community of working farms.
Search for the circular maze of rounded beach stones; marvel at the stone stacks and cairns that dot Wingletang Down, or search the beaches for shipwrecked treasures at Beady Pool. Periglis Beach is a fine spot for a picnic as well as a shell collectors’ paradise. There are stunning views across to Annet, the Western Rocks and out to the Bishop Rock Lighthouse. And then there’s the Old Man of Gugh, who stands 3 metres tall and is believed to be associated with Bronze Age rituals.
St Agnes is home to Britain’s most south westerly pub the Turks Head.
