Famous for its pristine beaches and coastline, its wildlife, history, culture and much more, the Isles of Scilly are well worth a visit at any time of year.

Isles of Scilly ferry travel guide

The Atlantic winds and the Gulf Stream have shaped this paradise of crystalline waters, turquoise sea and white fine-grain sand, making of these islands a great destination.

The IOS archipelago is composed by five inhabited islands, (St. Mary's, Tresco, St. Martins, Bryher and St. Agnes), and dozens of rocks and islets located on the West of Cornwall's coast. They extend more than 6 square miles surrounded by the Celtic Sea. According to documents from the Roman Empire it seems that at the time the islands constituted a single one. Nowadays when the tide is very low it's possible to walk between some of the islands.

On the Three Hundred and Thirty Five Years' War between the Netherlands and the Isles of Scilly not even a single shot was fired.

Inhabited since the Stone Age, its people have survived all this centuries thanks to fishing and agriculture. Nowadays the islands still depend on the sea and land, and that is because the flower business (mostly daffodils) and tourism have become the main drive of the local economy.

The fun and entertainment are guaranteed whatever you like; long walks on deserted beaches picking up sea shells and having a picnic on the sand, stargazing after a spectacular sunset, go for a swim or watch the dolphins and other wildlife. If what you really like are thrilling experiences, the islands have much to offer to you too, practice horse riding, hire a sail boat and visit all the islands, go kayaking, windsurfing, kite-surfing or rowing, experience a submarine safari, hire a horse-drawn carriage or a motorbike to explore the islands of St. Mary's and Tresco. And don't forget to go snorkelling with the seals!
