Isles of Scilly (which is the prefered name, rather than
'Scilly Isles' or 'Scillies') is an archipelago of five inhabited
islands and numerous other small rocky islets 28 miles off Lands
End - the most South Westerly point of the British Isles. With a
total population of just over two thousand, an exceptionally mild
climate, and countless golden sandy beaches, Scilly is a beautiful
haven of peace and tranquility loved by visitors and locals alike.
What a wonderful
summer we are having here on Scilly - with plenty of sunshine, and
the islands full of visitors enjoying all the treasures that Scilly
has to offer. It never ceases to amaze me, though, that even at
the height of the season, you can still find a stunning, sandy beach
with no more than a handful of other people sharing it with you.
Scilly really is very special in that respect.
