Tresco

The second largest island, Tresco, is an island of contrasts, with wild, barren beaches in the north, stunning subtropical gardens and the powdery white sand and calm waters of Pentle and Appletree Bays in the south. Explore the rugged north coast on bike, or if you’re feeling brave, by boat! And don’t miss the world-famous Tresco Abbey Gardens, one of the finest collections of sub-tropical plants from all corners of the globe.

St Martin's

Share your pictures of the beaches on St Martin’s and your friends won’t believe you’re in the UK! With sweeping sandy beaches and crystal clear water, all surrounded by lush plant life, rare birds and heather-lined cliffs, St Martin’s beauty never fails to astonish.

 

Visit the flower farm, vineyard, artisan bakery or local Scilly-inspired jewellery makers. And don’t miss the opportunity to dive or snorkel with seals! 

Bryher

Much like Tresco, Bryher’s two sides are like chalk and cheese. Home to simple pleasures, a day on Bryher will leave you feeling invigorated. Traverse the island along the many tracks, and discover stalls selling everything from freshly-landed seafood to divine island fudge.

St Agnes

This peaceful mile-wide island is completely unspoilt and reassuringly traditional. The sandbar that joins St Agnes to Gugh, its nearest neighbour at low tide, is enchanting. Inland, discover patchwork fields and quaint cottages.
