Places to Visit in Scilly Isles

Head to the Scilly Isles for a motorhome holiday on an enchanting archipelago that guarantees an unforgettably magical experience. Perched just off the coast of Cornwall, this cluster of small islands remain beautifully unspoilt, providing a perfectly peaceful destination for your next adventure. Delve into Tresco, as you explore its dramatic landscapes and rich history. Traverse rocky outcrops in the island’s rugged north. Admire the local wildlife in the island’s centre, where birds nest among Tresco’s freshwater pools. Feel inspired as you explore the world famous 1830s Tresco Abbey Garden, a horticultural paradise which hosts a spectacular collection of more than 20,000 exotic plants from all corners of the world – many of which cannot be grown anywhere else in Britain. Take in the Garden’s impressively colourful Valhalla collection, comprised of figureheads salvaged from the islands’ shipwrecks.

Relax on St Martins, with its crystal-clear waters and idyllic beaches that create an all-encompassing sense of calm. Search rock pools in Lawrence’s Bay, or laze about in the cool waters of Par Beach, Bread and Cheese Cove or Great Bay. Enjoy a leisurely stroll along heathery cliff path walks as you admire the island’s spectacular flowers, plant life, rare birds and sensational panoramic views across the sea. Delve into the islets of Nornour, Ganilly and Menawethan to spot colonies of seals swimming or basking on the shore.

Feel inspired by the wonderful contrasts of St Agnes, an island that is home to rocky outcrops, paradisiacal beaches, and sheltered coves that mean you’ll never run out of things to explore. Head to Wingletang Down to marvel at the stone stacks and cairns that dot the beach. Comb the beaches at Beady Pool in search of shipwrecked treasures. Collect shells at the beautiful Periglis Beach before relaxing in front of a stunning view out to the bird sanctuary that is Annet, the Western Rocks and out to Bishop Rock. Admire the 3 metre tall Old Man of Gugh, a standing stone believed to be associated with Bronze Age rituals, and imagine times long past.

Take in the beauty of Bryher, an island pounded by Atlantic waves on one side, and blessed with beautifully tranquil beaches on the other. Take in the dramatically contrasting landscapes which inspired Michael Morpurgo’s “Why the Whales Came” as you explore rocky coves, laze on white sandy beaches or hike up granite hills in search of stunning views.
