Best campsites for the Isles of Scilly AONB
Here is our pick of the Alan Rogers Assessors, expert-recommended campsites for the Isles of Scilly Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Set on an archipelago 28 miles southwest of Cornwall, the Isles of Scilly Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty covers the whole of the Scillies. It’s an area of just 16 square kilometres, the smallest AONB in the country. Landscape features include rocky cliffs, sheltered bays, tranquil lagoons, quaint little harbours, and other settlements. Not surprisingly, the islands and their crystal clear waters provide excellent habitats for grey seals and a variety of sea birds, but land-based animals like the Scilly Shrew and the Scilly Bee are unique.
The largest island is St Mary’s but the others like Tresco, a sub-tropical gem, St Agnes (the most southerly) and the ruggedly beautiful Bryher offer plenty of marine interest and conservation activities. Within the AONB are Sites of Special Scientific Interest and Scheduled Ancient Monuments and ancient shipwrecks.
Visitors enjoy observing the wildlife, fishing, diving, archaeological tours and cycling – all in an atmosphere of wonderful peace and serenity.
