Off the Cornish coast, in the middle of the Celtic sea, islands rear up like the chimera in the Iliad and the Odyssey, islands that look like they stem from a dream: the Iles of Scilly. With fine sand coves, clear water, tropical plants, mild temperatures and lush vegetation, nature reigns supreme there. Dolphins leap beside the boats, basking sharks get up close and curious, and turtles come to explore. The Isles of Scilly provide unforgettable walks, offering intoxicating panoramic views dominated by the turquoise blue sea. Connected by boat, each island is unique. But they all have one thing in common: they feel like a slice of paradise, that has wound up in the United Kingdom.
