Samson is the largest uninhabited island in the Isles of Scilly that has some former stone cottages used when it was inhabited until 1855.
Samson has two hills simply known as the North Hill and the South Hill and some good sandy beaches.
The island, along with the nearby islands of Green Island, Puffin Island, Stony Island, and White Island was designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) for their biological characteristics and is a protected wildlife site.
Boat trips to Samson are regularly available May through September although there are no amenities or services available, but guided walks are led by local experts.
