Stunning beach

Lovely beach, crystal clear waters with a seal or two watching you paddle or if really brave swim. Stunning views out to sea.

Sat here among the rushes and did a watercolour. Very relaxing and extremely pretty! Would have loved to go in for a dip but I think the water was barely above freezing! Shall return in October next year when the water has had a chance to warm up a bit!

Very pretty bay and beach with sand and fine pebbles, overlooking the island of Samson. Slightly off the beaten track, so generally tends to be quite quiet.

We stayed on Bryher for three days and visited the southern tip and Rushy bay. There must have been eight seals playing in the bay probably sheltering from the Atlantic storms the previous night. It was still possible to hear and see the thunderous waves out to sea crashing on the rocks and small islands. Well worth a visit but... More

We loved this little bay only a short walk from Hell Bay Hotel. En route stop and see the labyrinth and the little stone pillars visitors have left here - we left our own too.

The changing weather changes the mood and look of the bay. Very scenic. Worth taking a ferry to Bryher to walk the coastline, or swim ... Great for artists, photographers ...

Enjoyed a morning at rushy bay. The tide was very low so there was a great expanse of white sand with shells to collect. I had planned to return at high tide to take a swim as it felt like a safe place to go in.

Lovely beach but crowded by Scilly standards, as many as 10 other people were there with us during half term. Saw some seals and went snorkelling, good visibility but not as much interest as Great Bay on St Martins
