Get active on the Isles of Scilly

Isles of Scilly, Cornwall

Don't let Scilly's tranquility fool you – there is a huge range of outdoor activities to keep every member of the family occupied.

Have you ever snorkelled with seals? Had a horse riding holiday spent trotting through gently lapping seas? Watched a gig race? You can do all these and more on the Isles of Scilly.

With more than 30 miles of nature trails and walks on St Mary's alone, wildlife and birdlife abounds at every turn.

Take a boat trip on a high-speed RIB ride or a gentler trip on a glass-bottomed boat. Learn to sail or hone your windsurfing skills, or kayak around the coastline.

Play golf, go fishing, try kite surfing, hire a bike and explore historic sites. There’s enough outdoor activities for everyone on these tranquil islands.
