Legend has it very young Jesus landed there with his uncle, Joseph of Arimethia, who traded tin with the Roman tin merchants, with that as legend it soon became a site of pilgrimage and on 2 or three days of the year when the tides are very low it is possible to walk across the land bridge, ankle deep, and visit this special place for a quick look at the stony beach and a chat with the few island dwellers.
