The Five Star Burgh Island Hotel, was the location for Agatha Christie's "Evil under the Sun". There you can enjoy dinner and dancing in the magnificent Art Deco surroundings. At low tide you can take a 500 yard stroll across the sand and walk round the island up to the Huer's hut, originally the site of a 600 A.D Monastery. You can then stop for anything from a drink, light snacks to a full meal at 14th Century Pilchard Inn built in 1336, haunt of the smuggler Tom Crocker. You will not be left stranded as a unique stilted sea-tractor, conveys visitors back to the mainland.

Set in the heart of the South Hams, close by are numerous places of interest, including the sophisticated yachting centre of Salcombe, historic Dartmouth and Plymouth and their connections with Sir Francis Drake and the Pilgrim Fathers.
