Know Before You Go
The site lacks a timetable for the day's high and low tide. Ask your hotel. It's important to know the time: 2.5 hours after low tide, and you’ll get wet feet, three hours and you’ll have to call the coastguard at 999. Best is to arrive 3 hours after high tide and see the path fall dry. If the gatehouse is open, the price is under 5£ for adults. If its closed, it's free. Dress for the weather, as this island is open to the elements and has no shelter.
