Best for sun and (empty) beaches

THE ISLES OF SCILLY

Feeling more Bajan than British, The Isles of Scilly are blessed with glorious sand and crystal-clear seas. There are five inhabited islands – Tresco, St Mary’s, St Martin’s, Bryher and St Agnes. Good food is part of the islands’ fabric and during September they host the Taste of Scilly food festival with island-hopping food trails, foraging, seafood classes and wine tastings.

Tresco’s Appletree Bay is a pristine white-sand beach with palm trees, vibrant wildflowers and turquoise waters. Hire one of the beautiful Flying Boat Cottages and enjoy beachfront views, woodburning stoves and the spa. Tresco is a small island so you can’t miss The Ruined Beach Café, on Old Grimsby Beach. Sit on the terrace and feast on the seafood. And if you need to stock up on grub, Tresco Stores & Deli is like a food hall in microcosm – and they deliver.

For quiet coves and stunning secluded beaches, crash out in a cute cottage or bell tent at Troytown Farm on St Agnes. Or cool down with an ice cream, made with the farm’s own milk.

Don’t miss the fun at Fraggle Rock Bar on Bryher, the smallest inhabited island. Fish and chips are on the menu, and it’s the liveliest of boozers.
