Feeling the need for space has never been so important. For a suitably quiet option for socially distanced holidays by the sea, it doesn’t get much better than a holiday on the Isles of Scilly.

More than 140 islands - of which five are inhabited - sit afloat in the Atlantic Ocean 28 miles off the Cornish coast. Surrounded by emerald seas and big skies, they all have their distinctive characteristics and charm, and are a world apart in every way. Life is simpler and moves at a slower pace, giving you time and space for reflection and a chance to rediscover ‘you’ and recharge. In fact, it is like nowhere else in England.

Escape for a spot of unadulterated relaxation and far-reaching island views, and an abundance of small, independent eateries, galleries and retail outlets, and next-to-empty beaches, even in peak season. With its Caribbean-like quality, frequently captured by resident artists, its many rocky islets, woodlands, heaths, grasslands, wetlands and dunes offer a variety of habitats for wildlife and is commonly used as a stopgap for migratory birds looking for a convenient resting spot.

St Mary’s is the largest inhabited island and is the perfect spot from which to explore the other inhabited islands and island-hop your way around Scilly. Tresco, St Martin’s, St Agnes and Bryher are alluring, with their snow-white sand, sub-tropical splendour, and historic landmarks.

The isles are accessible by passenger ferry and plane with Isles of Scilly Travel or by helicopter with Penzance Helicopters
