Tresco is the second largest of the islands and the only one that is privately owned.
Bronze age burial sites, castle ruins and secluded sandy beaches enhance the beauty of this island.
Rental bikes are available to get around to explore the island or simply borrow a boat, windsurf or kayak from Tresco Sailing Club.
If staying on the Island of St. Mary’s, a day trip to Tresco highly recommended.
