Price from: £1059pp

Solo traveller price from £1549

Day 1 Travel by sea or air to the Isles of Scilly
On arrival make your way to your hotel.

Days 2-3 St Mary's
At leisure to explore as you wish. Take a stroll around the island's hub, Hugh Town, or enjoy one of the lovely beaches, be it Porthcressa, Town Beach or Porthmellon. Stroll around Old Town, or head up country away from the relative hustle and bustle and you will find that St Mary's is a haven of hidden treasures, including dramatic rocky coves, stunning seascapes, amazing archaeological sites, beautiful walks and nature trails.

Day 4 St Mary's/St Martin's
Head to the quay for the 30 minute boat ride to St Martin's (ferry is payable locally). On arrival make your way to your hotel.

Day 5 St Martin's
A full day to explore and as this delightful island is just two miles long that should be easy! As well as breathtakingly beautiful beaches the island showcases spectacular plant life, rare birds and sensational sea views along the heathery cliff path walks. You'll also find great local food, a winery, a flower farm and the opportunity to go snorkelling amongst playful Atlantic grey seals.

Day 6 Day 6 St Martin's/Tresco
Return to the quay for the ferry back to St Mary's and then take a 20 minute ferry ride to Tresco (ferry payable locally).

Day 7 Tresco
A day to explore this subtropical gem. The rugged north is a walker's paradise, there's no finer spot to chill than the sugar-white sands of Pentle and Appletree Bays, and of course, let's not forget the world-famous Tresco Abbey Garden which hosts a spectacular collection of more than 20,000 exotic plants from around the world.

Day 8 Tresco/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.
