The Isles of Scilly: Cornwall or Caribbean.

To think, perhaps to dream, of a quiet place, a place of great beauty, washed by azure seas, golden beaches, dramatic cliff;  to wander perhaps across lonely moors and breath-taking coastal vistas. A possibility to find peace and come back to an inner serenity. Of course that place is within us, but sometimes we have to leave our lives for a while and find a place to for this soul of ours to take refuge, to lose the grip of the frantic activity of a mind confused with worries, anxieties and a lack of ease. The demands of life today have the ability to overwhelm our mind and our senses and we get lost for a time. We all need the space to clear all this bombardment to be able to see clearly once again.

Of course, so far from everywhere, West Cornwall is just the place to come back to an inner peace. A tranquillity where thought can once again come from a place of clarity.

We are spoilt here for choice to just find a place to sit and gaze at the waves or wander through the glories of our natural beauty. Many people have also found that the Isles of Scilly also offer a place of peace of tranquillity and harks back to an earlier and more innocent time.

 St Martins Beach Isles of Scilly

Bathed by the waters of the Atlantic, with beaches reminiscent more of Caribbean islands than anything else found in Northern Europe, the Isles of Scilly and West Cornwall attract world-weary souls from the world over.

The Mount Haven Hotel near Penzance is popular as a stop over to and from the Isles of Scilly convenient both for the Scillonion ferry and Land’s End Airport.
