St Martins has a little bit of everything, and is a place that visitors fall for in a big way! A good proportion of St Martins visiors are ‘regulars’, that is, can’t stay away, have to visit every year to recharge and relax. On the inside (western side) are the St Martins flats, a wide, shallow, sandy beach which on many a visit we have never made it further than that. On the outside you can walk along the rocky foreshore and not meet a soul all day.
St Martins has a busy sheltered campsite, with direct access the St Martins Flats, guest houses and plenty of self catering accommodation, plus one of only two hotels off St Marys, the St Martins on the Isle Hotel.
A diving school, vineyard and bakery, are all on St Martins, along with a well stocked shop and various galleries to visit. There are plenty of eating options from Little Arthur Cafe at one end to the Island Hotel at the other, in between is the Seven Stones Inn, Adams Fish and Chips, and we have it on good authority that you could feed an army with a single slice of treacle tart from the Polreath Tea Room.
