Most Interesting Tiny Island Vacations

Piel Island – England

Piel Island is a miniscule island located half a mile off the coast of England, in the county of Cumbria. There are only six inhabitants currently. Three of which are considered the Royal Family of Piel, who also run the island’s only business, a pub.

The island has a rich history, and the ruin of Piel Castle is a testament to its fascinating past. You can camp anywhere on the island for free, but before you bed down for the night, make sure you fill up on hearty fare from the island’s tiny Ship’s Inn pub, which has been on that spot for 300 years.
