It is a designated heritage coastline with a fabulous array of attractions. This is a region bearing testament to bloody battles of centuries long ago. Skim over the sands and causeway to Holy Island, cut off twice-daily from the rest of the world by fast-moving tides. Both an island and a picturesque village, Holy Island contains a wealth of history within it’s tidal walls.
