Days 2-3 St Mary’s
At leisure to explore. Hugh Town is the central hub and where you’ll find a cluster of shops, cafes, galleries, restaurants and pubs. There are also three lovely beaches close by if you fancy some time with the sand between your toes. Up country, the coastline features large stretches of dramatic rocky coves, stunning seascapes, amazing archaeological sites, and beautiful walks along miles of coastal and country paths or nature trails.
Day 4 St Mary’s/St Martin’s
Make your way to the quay for the 30 minute boat to St Martin’s (ferry is payable locally). On arrival make your way to your hotel.
Day 5 St Martin’s
Crystal clear waters, idyllic beaches and a prevailing sense of calm make St Martin’s pretty special and you have a full day to explore as you wish. The gorgeous beaches include Bread and Cheese Cove, Great Bay, Little Bay and Lawrence’s Bay. Additionally, the spectacular flowers, plant life, rare birds and sensational sea views from the cliff path walks all add to the appeal. Exploring the islets of Nornour, Ganilly and Menawethan from St Martin’s also gives you the chance to spot colonies of seals as they frolic close to shore.
