Isles of Scilly

Discover this archipelago with its fine food, balmy climate and picture-perfect beaches

Why go

Deserted bays, wild heathland, waves crashing against towering limestone cliffs — welcome to the Isles of Scilly, an archipelago of almost 150 islands, 28 miles off the Cornish coast. But don’t let its proximity to the UK fool you; these islands feel like a different world. Just like the islands themselves, the glorious sunshine and balmy heat are positively Mediterranean, and the flight on a tiny 16-seater plane that bumps along at just 7,000ft feels like a step back in time. And it doesn’t change after touchdown: cars are a rare sight; supermarkets are non-existent; and these rugged, unspoilt islands ease on at a gentle, unhurried pace.

About National Geographic Traveller (UK)

We grab our binoculars and set out to discover the awe-inspiring wildlife of India, scouting out the likes of Bengal tigers, one-horned rhinos and snow leopards in some of the subcontinent’s most dramatic national parks. Elsewhere, we explore the winelands of southern Australia; cross the frozen frontier of the Antarctic Circle; and spend a long weekend in the city of Leeuwarden. Other highlights this issue include the Faroe Islands, Tel Aviv, Manhattan, Tokyo and Santiago, while our photo story takes in the fresh air and Alpine beauty of Switzerland.
