Farm Beach is a handy spot to know about when you're on Tresco. The sandy beach is on the west side of the island, on the channel between Bryher and Tresco, which gives it a bit of shelter as well as lovely views across to Bryher and tiny Plumb Island. Dogs are welcome to join you for a walk or a paddle at Farm Beach (please keep them on the lead).
Of course, you're close to everywhere on this small island; however, Farm Beach is especially handy for New Grimsby and lunch at the New Inn. If you want to beach hop, carry on south along the coast path, and you'll soon come to the famously beautiful Appletree Bay. However, for a quieter spot all year round, Farm Beach is perfect.
