Anchorage at Periglis St Agnes Scilly

I am planning on a trip next year to Isles of Scilly, camping at the campsite on St Agnes. If weather permits I wondered about anchoring at Periglis rather than The Cove or Porth Conger, as it closer to Troytown campsite (but further than the Turks Head...). Any experience of Periglis out there?

I'd be very cautious dependng on what the sea state and weather conditions were doing. It's only a 5 min walk across St Agnes.

periglis is for the most part fine for mooring up.
however it is tidal so you wont be able to get in /out at LW springs, when the rib is in the inner safe bit.
the area is also littered with nasty sharp rocks so get your navigation spot on.
Also the trip round and into periglis can be rough even if once in there its flat.
Kitt legg has his fishing boat in there most of the time and its a white cauldron of white water sometimes at hight water...but the rock bars surrounding periglis break up the worst of the seas before they get into the main bit.
in the height of summer the best bits of periglis are normally taken by local boats on moorings as room is tight....so.....
Have a word with tim or sam at the campsite and see if they could blag a moorings for you for the time your over.


cheers
pete

You forgot to mention the Tourist Information Centre.
