The Bar Beach
The Bar beach is a small sandbar that joins St. Agnes to the island of Gugh.
The beach disappears at high tide but when available the two bays either side are sheltered and ideal for swimming and snorkelling.
St. Agnes is small and everything is within walking distance although you still have only a choice of a few cafes and a small shop.
