The Grottoes. A small path leads from the harbour through a gap in the wire, along the rocks, to the sandy beach at the Grottoes. The ideal spot for newcomers to the island. There is a tempting pinewood with shady nocks above the bay. The holidaymakers have their annual festival calles "Election of the Island Queen" at the Grottoes. Should the gap in the fence happen to be closed do not simply circumnavigate it. A closed door means that the Navy are on manoeuvres and need "freedom of action". Contravention can bring unpleasantness in its train and can annoy the military who are generally so equable.
