The Isles of Scilly’s unique combination of clear, unpolluted waters, rugged coastlines, heaths, wetlands and lush green fields, together with its temperate climate, allows a very special mix of rare plants, animals and sea life to flourish. The Isles of Scilly are designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and from puffins to porpoises, Jewelled Anemones to exotic Hottentot Figs, the remarkable diversity of flora and fauna here will take your breath away. Whether you choose to explore on foot, by bike, on horseback or by boat, you’ll be amazed at the sheer volume of wildlife that presents itself at every turn.
There are regular nature walks and boat tours in the Isles of Scilly – we can put you in touch with guides. For spectacular, unrestricted views of the large seal and bird colonies which thrive around the off-islands (plus the opportunity to snorkel with seals, if you choose), it’s well worth taking one of the sea safari tours which run regularly from St Mary’s. We can put you in touch with the operators.
