Bigbury on Sea Beach
Bigbury on Sea Beach
The lowest part of the beach is closest to Burgh Island and as the tide floods in this is the part that gets covered first. In this view the incoming tide has just cut the island off and a few people are wading across or at least contemplating the idea. Wading will soon be impossible leaving the only options a 2 fare on the sea tractor or waiting for the water to recede.
