Day 5 - Full Day to the Isles of Scilly
We make our way to Penzance and board our sailing to St Mary’s, the largest of the Scilly Isles. The crossing takes around 2¾ hours and offers a unique view of some of Cornwall’s most iconic coastline and occasionally dolphins, seals and puffins on the approach to the enchanting archipelago. Landing in Hugh Town, the central hub and ‘capital’ of the islands, you’ll find a cluster of shops, beautiful beaches and countryside paths. The way of life here is much simpler – with just 2200 residents scattered across the main five islands things are quieter, more relaxed and despite being less than 30 miles from the mainland you’ll feel a world away! Don’t forget your camera!/n
