    This small crescent of white sand sits in a sheltered bay on the eastern coast of Tresco. 

    The beach is bordered to one end by Old Grimsby Quay and overlooked by the old fort on Tommy's Hill at the other. To the rear are low dunes which provide some shelter from the south-westerly breezes.

    All the beaches on Tresco are pretty wonderful; Green Porth is a good choice for when it's windy as well as being easy to reach from the boat drop off at New Grimsby.
