Isles of Scilly

Situated just 28 miles south west of Lands End, this stunning collection of islands exudes a timeless peace and natural tranquillity - the perfect environment in which to relax.

Set amidst clear blue waters, the Isles of Scilly is a nature-lovers paradise. The islands are home to an amazing array of flora and fauna - many not seen in the UK mainland.

As there are no cars on the smaller islands, you can take a leisurely stroll and discover a landscape full exotic flowers, palm trees and herbs. Wildlife flourishes with rare bird species able to colonise in safety. As well as many marine animal species, puffins and seals prove to be quite an attraction.

The surrounding sea is home to rare corals and sea fans as well as vast kelp forests and sea grass, an  excellent place for snorkelling or scuba diving.

Beach-lovers can try one of the many water sports on offer, or unwind on the incredible white sand beaches. The islands enjoy plentiful sunshine with little airbourne pollution.
