Accessible by helicopter, ferry or small plane from Penzance, the Isles of Scilly offer an assortment of flowers (daffodils are the main export), white-sand beaches, birds, trails, small forts and a pirate-laden history.
St. Mary's, the main island, has the most hotels and pubs. The tallest lighthouse in Britain sits on St. Agnes, and Tresco boasts a tropical botanical garden. St. Martin's has the best beaches.
Nature lovers, walkers and scuba divers will enjoy time on the islands. The flower season peaks in March; except in summer, peace and quiet reign.
