St Mary’s

Isles of Scilly

St Mary’s is the hub of island life, with air and sea links to the mainland, regular ferries to the outer islands and a cluster of shops, restaurants and galleries. It is also home to the widest selection of accommodation from classic hotels to a campsite. But just because it’s the only island where you’ll witness more than a handful of cars, don’t expect a metropolis: St Mary’s is, after all, still just three miles across at its widest point. And while most of its activity is centred around Hugh Town, the rest of the island still boasts deserted beaches, nature trails, narrow winding lanes and wild heathland dotted with burial chambers.
