  1. Active Experiences on Scilly
    Discover Scilly’s active, outdoorsy side – perfect for young at heart couples and friends looking for a healthy, adventurous holiday!
  2. 7 Fun Family Adventures on Scilly
    Gearing up for the summer holidays? Here's 7 fun family adventures suitable for all ages, whether you're visiting Scilly for a day or longer.
  3. From riding horses in the sea to coasteering our rocky shore; from competitive gig rowing to tagging blue sharks in the deep: get your heart pumping as we take you on a journey of Scilly's active and adventurous side.
  4. Activities - On or in the Water
    There’s a reason why Scilly has been discovered as a scuba diving, snorkelling and coasteering Mecca, why it attracts hundreds of gig rowers and sea swimmers each year to take on island-to-island challenges, and why brave kayakers and paddleboarders attempt to circumnavigate the islands or even head back to Cornwall from Scilly itself.
  5. Activities - On Land
    Sometimes, when on Scilly, it is enough to just observe and absorb what’s around you. At other times you feel like exploring, and it is for those moments of discovery that we have gathered together a few thoughts about some of the people and places that make the Isles of Scilly so special. From walking (or running!) the coastal paths or cycling quiet, traffic-free lanes to horse riding on the beach or a round of golf with some of the most spectacular views in the country.
