With a population of only 1800 St. Mary’s is the largest of the Islands and the hub for access to the other Islands.
With an area of less than 2.5 square miles St. Mary’s has an array of excellent hotels, guest B&B’s and self- catering accommodation plus all the amenities of shops, churches, banks, post office, café’s, galleries, museum, restaurants and of course, the good old British pubs
Like all the Islands, St. Mary’s is a safe haven for those morning or afternoon walks, jogging or cycling along miles of coastal and country paths and nature trails where you can find yourself at deserted white sandy beaches, rocky coves and amazing archaeological sites
In addition to those deserted beaches, there are three lovely beaches all within close proximity – Porthcressa, Town Beach which is great for watching inbound and outbound sailing boats and motor craft. The third beach is at Porthmellon which also hosts the Sailing Centre
