Explore the island on foot
If you land at Carn Near, head up over Carn Near road and you’ll pass through heathlands of heather. From here you’ll pass the famous Tresco Abbey Gardens and Abbey pool, take a right and aim for the coast, you’ll come to Pentle Bay, one of the most outstanding stretches of sand on the islands. Walk across the beach and join the coast path back onto Parting Carn, this is now the middle of the island and a path of trees and ferns. Keep following the track and you’ll see the town Old Grimsby where you can find a bite to eat before heading past the local church and to New Grimsby to meet your returning boat.
