Scilly is most pleasant from May until September when the weather is warm and the islands lively. Perfect for sailing, bathing and lounging, the summer months, in particular, are ideal for swimming. Crowds are never usually an issue here, but prices do rise in the high season; other fine times to visit include Easter and October half-term. While winter can be equally stunning, services are greatly reduced. It's a quieter time that's perfect for pub visits and windswept walks – just don’t expect the same warming waters. Star-gazers will find much to cherish too on these isolated and unspoilt islands.
Romantic, secluded, peaceful and adventurous, the Isles of Scilly are suited for many travellers. Most of all, the romantic sea-view offerings provide much needed 'we time' for couples.
