About St Agnes

On the most south-westerly edge of the Isles of Scilly, St. Agnes is totally unspoilt and astonishingly peaceful. It measures just a mile or so across, and its closest neighbour is Gugh, to which it is joined by a sand bar at low tide. This is an island of wonderful contrasts, from rocky outcrops on its exposed west side to paradise beaches in its more sheltered coves; the tranquillity of the sandbar between St. Agnes and Gugh is particularly magical. Inland are pretty cottages and a patchwork of flower fields, while a lighthouse stands at the island’s highest point. St. Agnes is also a thriving community of working farms and creative, light industrial flair. 

Fresh local food is a passion of the island as found at the Turks Head Pub, Coastguards Lookout Cafe, Coastguards Lookout Tapas & Cocktail evenings. Gav's Fish 'n' Chips, Rosie's Takeaway Pizzas and Troytown Farm Dairy Ice Cream and Farm Shop, Westward Farm Gin & Soap Shop and St Agnes Stores & Post Office plus local catch is available from Gwendra Fishing and Zero Waste Lobster Fishing

There's local arts and craft at Pot Buoys Gallery and at the Island Hall Artist Studios and loads of activity at St Agnes Watersports and the island tennis court.
