“Look out for landmarks like the Minack Theatre, St Michael’s Mount, and Poldark’s own Porthcurno beach…”
Sail from Penzance Harbour aboard the Scillonian III passenger ferry and soak up the stunning views of the Cornish coastline along the way. Look out for landmarks like the Minack Theatre, St Michael’s Mount, and Poldark’s own Porthcurno beach, then keep an eye on the waves as the ferry is occasionally joined by a pod of dolphins.
You’ll arrive on Scilly around midday, with plenty of time for an afternoon spent exploring the islands and making memories, before one last chance to see the islands from the sea as you return to the mainland at the end of the day.
The Isles of Scilly have so much to offer, whether you want to stretch your legs and wander along the 60 miles of coastal paths and scenic nature trails, all bathed in never-ending views across the archipelago; or get back to nature and enjoy the great outdoors by snorkelling with seals, embarking on a wildlife boat safari, kayaking to an off-island or exploring tropical gardens.
Then again maybe you’ll just want to choose your favourite beach and relax on a deserted stretch of fine, white sand framed by crystal-clear azure waters. So what are you waiting for?
