Great Par Beach

Great Par Beach is a semi-circular sandy beach with some rocks on the west coast of Bryher and is also sometimes referred to as Great Porth after the bay. The beach is more rugged than the calmer eastern coast and this is just about as west as you can go in England, with the exception of some of the rocky islands you can see.

A great place for sunsets and watching visits from seals.

Bryher is only a small island and so you have access to a shop and food.
