Lundy lies off the coast of North Devon, where the Atlantic ocean meets the Bristol Channel with nothing between it and America, a granite outcrop, three and a half miles long and half a mile wide. In the hubbub of the modern world it is a place apart, peaceful and unspoilt.
A day trip to Lundy Island is also a cruise, a chance to enjoy the beautiful North Devon coast. Lundy's own ship the MS Oldenburg, is a sizeable vessel, carrying 267 passengers, and providing bar, buffet, shop and information centre. Fascinating island guides and leaflets are available to help you.
A unique and unspoilt island, undisturbed by cars, and home to a fascinating array of wildlife amidst dramatic scenery: deer, seals, ponies, dolphins and rare birds. There is a small village with an Inn and Victorian church, and nearby the 13th Century Marisco Castle.
People return time and again to the simple pleasures that Lundy affords; the sea is clear, the landscape spectacular and at night, without competition from street lights, it is truly dark and the stars shine with an unfamiliar brilliance.
