Like Cornwall, if no-one knew that Cornwall existed.
As far as I'm aware, the Isles of Scilly tourist board haven't started using that as an advertising slogan yet (well, unless they've read my mind) but they should. Because that's exactly what it's like. Gorgeous sandy beaches, clear blue sea, coastal walks, more pubs than you can shake a stick at, ice creams, cream teas, pasties, little boats... And no massive crowds. It's as close to paradise as you're going to get without leaving the UK.
Here's some pictures from my 2003 trip (excuse the poor quality, I resorted to taking photos of photos!):
I'm gong back there in August and I can't wait. In fact, daydreaming about this is getting me through these cold winter days. I'm definitely going to try snorkeling, and maybe some sea cannoeing this time. Well, I will if I can fit it in between the cream teas and pub lunches...
Do you have any holiday plans for the summer?
