Our campers always comment that a holiday on Bryher is always relaxing, but never boring!

If you want to chill out and truly relax, Scilly is the ultimate place to do just that – but there’s also plenty to do when you want to get active! Parents never cease to be amazed by just how much children love the freedom and adventure of Bryher, which in turn means parents are free to relax and unwind.

As Dan of Bennett Boatyard puts it: “Bryher is beautiful, peaceful and has lots to do, in a don’t-have-to-do-anything sort of way!”

Below is just a taster of some of the activities on offer on Bryher and around the islands...

Nothing anywhere can beat Bryher on a lovely summer day...

The beaches are great and you can while away a day rock-pooling, shrimping and even walk to Tresco. The fishing is excellent and snorkelling is fabulous too. There are some beautiful walks right from the campsite with extraordinary views all around. 

Children are safe to walk about the island and for the adults - well Bryher is the only place I really feel like I can get work out of my head.

Popplestones Beach Bryher

Find a Beach

Bryher has lots of beautiful beaches – and you can often find one all to yourself, even in the summer. There are plenty of beautiful sandy coves, perfect for sandcastle building, beach-combing, a beach BBQ or simply to relax with a good book.
Shrimping on Bryher

Go Shrimping

Catch Supper - Hire a shrimping net from Island Fish, head to one of the island's best shrimping spots (ask a local!) and catch your supper. Cook up on the camp stove and serve simply with crusty bread. Delicious.
Scilly Gig Rowing

Watch a Gig Race

Scilly's national sport and a true spectacle! Gigs used to race out to pilot passing ships through Scillonian waters, or rescue sailors from wrecks. Today, Gig crews compete on a Wednesday and Friday night. Head out to watch the race with Tresco Boat Services.
