Perpitch beach lies on the southeast coast of St Martin's, Isles of Scilly. It is a pretty sandy beach of very pale golden sand with turquoise sea. It looks southeast to the Chimney Rocks and Great Ganilly, largest of the Eastern Isles.
Perpitch beach lies to the east of Higher Town Bay and is a great place for a picnic. It is sheltered by Gun Hill to the south and Brandy Point to the north.
The striped red and white daymark on Chapel Down lies a short stroll away to the north.
There is no lifeguard cover and no facilities at Perpitch Beach. All the usual facilities are to be found at Higher Town about threequarters of a mile to the west.
In 1975, the Isles of Scilly were designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) so a visit is always sure to please.
