Toll's Porth is a small west facing rocky cove with a little sand on the northwest coast of St. Mary's, Isles of Scilly.
It is overlooked by Bant's Carn, an ancient chambered tomb. The rock jutting out westwards here is known as the Creeb.
The northern end of the island is far less commercialised than the rest of St. Mary's and offers one the chance to relax and reflect away from the hustle and bustle.
There is a good walk over McFarland's Down to the east coast at Watermill Cove and the Innisidgen burial chambers as well as south to Porthloo where cany walkers break their journey at Juliet's Garden, an excellent restaurant and bar.
The island of St. Mary's offers a wide range of things to do that belies the island's small size. Rich in stunning scenery and full of history there really is something to fulfill most interests.
✔ Flora and Fauna
✔ Sandy beach
