    Walking

    One of the easiest and most enjoyable activities to partake in on Lundy Island is to go walking. Wear a pair of comfortable walking boots with a good grip and ankle support, as the ground is often uneven.

    Once you have reached the top of the hill, the island is mostly fairly flat. There is a rough tractor track that runs the length of the island, but you are free to wander off the trail, either following smaller paths, or just ambling aimlessly across the meadows.

    The island is four miles long by half a mile wide.

    Diving

    Again, this tip is not written from personal experience. I am a warm-watwer diver only! :-)

    Lundy was designated Britain's first statutory Marine Nature Reserve in 1986 and offers some of the best conditions for diving around the British coast. We saw several dive boats go out while we were there. The water is very clear and there is a rich and colourful marine flora and fauna.

    There is a diving centre south of the landing beach, which has a compressor, changing rooms and a small kitchen.

    Diving numbers are strictly controlled and must be reserved at the time of booking your accommodation.

    Rock Climbing

    The island is a favourite spot for rock climbers. I must confess I didn't try it - last time I did any rock climbing I was in my teens.

    The west coast is the main place for climbers, with routes graded from moderate/difficult to E3. Also the Knights Templar Rock on the east coast as well as Gannet's Buttress.

    Please note that some of the climbs are closed during the seabird breeding season - seek more information on the island.
