The Tamar Valley have retained a significant conservation area known as the Tamar Island Wetlands. This 60 ha tidal river wetland and island habitat is ideal for walks and sightseeing, offering some great photographic opportunities. The island itself is about 7 ha where there are remnants of a hut and exotic flora from earlier days of occupation. Much of the wetland has been disturbed by previous human occupation and grazing activities.

Visitors can enjoy a picnic on the island, flying a kite or just relaxing whilst watching the boats go by. Photographers and spectators can watch the spectacular changes in the light and colours of the hills, wetland and water. If you arrive early in the morning or late afternoon, you can see the waterbirds feeding. At low tide, you will be able to see the scuttled ships and discover the Island’s fascinating history. There is a 2 km boardwalk that winds it’s way pass the Wetlands Centre, viewing deck, bridge, extending over the swamps and crosses the river to two islets and finally, onto Tamar Island.

There are toilets, water, gas BBQ’s and pontoon boat landing facilities on the island. The walk is approximately 4 km return (about an hour). The boardwalk is wide enough for prams and wheelchairs.
