Beautiful Rushy Bay is situated on the southern tip of the peaceful island of Bryher, the smallest of the five inhabited Isles of Scilly, which lies to the west of Tresco. The island has a total length of 2 kilometres (1.2 miles), and a maximum width of 1 kilometre (0.62 miles)
The Bay boasts a stunning white sand beach with sand dunes at the top. Said to be one of the finest swimming coves on the Isles of Scilly, Rushy Bay is a calm and sheltered spot with a gently sloping beach protected by the neighbouring island of Samson and the towering peak of Samson Hill on Bryher.
Set in an area of outstanding natural beauty, the bay is home to a variety of birdlife and has rockpools on the west end and shallow, very clear water. The safe waters around Bryher makes it an ideal location for diving and snorkeling.
