Tresco's Pentle Beach has been named in the top 'Under-the-Radar' beaches by none other than the Wall Street Journal.
Tresco is famous for its white sand beaches, protected as the island is from the full force of the Atlantic but its westerly neighbour, Bryher.
The Wall Street Journal has now named Pentle one of its top 'under-the-radar' beaches.
The world-famous title lists Pentle first in its list of four beaches to enjoy away from the crowds. The newspaper comments on how "sub-tropical Scilly" is worth the trip for its "wild, bone-white beaches, often without a soul on them in high summer, and the improbably turquoise if chilly sea."
Other beaches in the list are in Barbados, Long Island and Menorca, so it's great to see Tresco can hold its own on the world stage.
It's not just Pentle that gets the thumbs up from those lovely chaps at the Wall Street Journal, either. Tresco is described as having "the area’s best accommodations; a string of beautiful beaches, including wide, dune-backed Pentle Bay; an impressive botanical gardens; Bronze Age burial sites; castle ruins; and great hiking."
Definitely one of the best beaches on Tresco, Pentle has previously been named one of Britain's best beaches by Conde Naste and The Telegraph, among others.
We can't imagine why... Perhaps it's the pure white sand, the clear blue sea, or the fact that often, even in the height of summer, you can have it completely to yourself...
