Burgh Island Beach

Once a famous pirate haunt, Burgh Island lies adjacent to Sedgewell Cove with two beaches only exposed at low water. The Murray rocks are east of the island and popular with scuba divers. Privately owned and popular with holiday makers and coastal walkers. Great pub and hotel on the island with the owners apparently willing to ferry customers by tractor at high tide.

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point and may not be accurate for this location. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.

In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use. Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.
