Explore A Different Island Every Day

Isles of Scilly

One of the greatest pleasures when staying on Scilly is to island hop and discover each island's distinct charms.

There are five inhabited islands that make up the Isles of Scilly - all small and all very close together. If you'd like a bit of mystery, there are many uninhabited ones to explore, too. 

It's easy to do one island a day (or indeed, three in one!) so hop on a "tripper" boat and go explore. Walking is the best way to get around - and you'll soon discover that each of the inhabited islands has a unique charm and character of its own.
