Access to the Island is via the gravel road/track located at M2575111537 starA .During low tide you have no problem driving on to the island and following the track to the left over concrete to within meters of the second gate on the right which will allow you access to the summit area or as i did parked at the coordinates and took a stroll around the island noting the remains of previous roads that connected the island to the mainland.The summit is on a working farm when i visited was after a field of sugar beet had been harvested .
