Day 1: Travel by sea or air to the Isles of Scilly. On arrival make your way to your hotel. If you have opted to fly from Exeter or Newquay, why not stop over in either city before flying onwards to St Mary’s.
Days 2-3 St Mary’s: Two days at leisure to explore this beautiful island. Hugh Town is the central hub and where you’ll find a cluster of shops, cafes, galleries, restaurants and pubs. There are also three lovely beaches close by if you fancy some time with the sand between your toes. Up country, the coastline features large stretches of dramatic rocky coves, stunning seascapes, amazing archaeological sites, beautiful walks and scenery along miles of coastal and country paths or nature trails.
Day 4 St Mary’s/St Martin’s: Make your way to the quay for the 30 minute boat to St Martin’s (ferry is payable locally). On arrival make your way to your hotel.
Day 5 St Martin’s: Crystal clear waters, idyllic beaches and a prevailing sense of calm make St Martin’s a delight and you have a full day to explore as you choose. The gorgeous beaches include Bread and Cheese Cove, Great Bay, Little Bay and Lawrence’s Bay. Additionally, the spectacular flowers, plant life, rare birds and sensational sea views along the cliff path walks all add to the beauty. Exploring the islets of Nornour, Ganilly and Menawethan from St Martin’s also gives you the chance to spot colonies of seals not so far off shore.
Day 6 St Martin’s/St Mary’s/mainland UK: Return by boat to St Mary’s (ferry payable locally) and then onward by air or sea to mainland UK.
Departures: Daily between 01 May-30 Sep 20.
