St. Mary’s

La splendida St. Mary’s: l'isola ideale per dedicarsi a numerose attività o all’ozio più assoluto 

St. Mary’s è l’isola più grande delle Scilly (con una popolazione di 1.800 abitanti) e si propone come il punto d’accesso al resto delle isole. Con un’area inferiore ai 6,5 km2, l’isola non è estremamente movimentata ma dati i suoi collegamenti via aerea e via mare, è molto probabile che sia questo il primo porto di scalo di ogni visita alle Scilly. 

Hugh Town è un centro nevralgico in cui si trovano negozi, banche, chiese, l’ufficio postale , il bar, gallerie, ristoranti e pub, oltre a un magnifico museo. Presenta inoltre tre splendide spiagge a poca distanza l’una dall’altra: Porthcressa, dotata di un’area gioco per bambini nelle vicinanze; Town Beach, il punto perfetto per osservare il viavai del molo; e Porthmellon che ospita anche il centro di vela. 

Il molo (in inglese “the Quay”) è il punto in cui il traghetto Scillonian III attracca ogni giorno ed è anche il punto da cui viaggerete se soggiornate in una delle altre isole o se prendete una barca turistica per un’escursione da St. Mary’s. 

La Old Town è il secondo “maggiore” centro abitato di St. Mary’s, più vicino all’aeroporto e con una splendida spiaggia, una riserva naturale, l’antica chiesa di Old Town Church dove è sepolto Sir Harold Wilson, un parco giochi per bambini, un negozio, un pub e alcuni bar. 

Nell’entroterra, lontano dalla zona più movimentata, St. Mary’s offre un’oasi di pace ricca di tesori nascosti. La costa presenta ampie distese di spiagge deserte di sabbia bianca, suggestive calette tra le rocce, splendidi paesaggi marini, sorprendenti siti archeologici, passeggiate e scenari mozzafiato lungo chilometri di costa, sentieri di campagna e percorsi naturalistici.
