Where to anchor in the Isles of Scilly
BY OUR TRAVEL EXPERT HENRY
“From old ruins to pristine beaches, the Isles of Scilly are a true haven for sailors seeking to get away from it all.”
Porth Conger | St. Angus
This small anchorage can only fit a handful of vessels. For those lucky enough to nab a spot, take a tender ashore an enjoy a pint in the UK’s most westerly pub – the Turks Head.
West Porth | Samson
Lying on the west side of Samson, you’re treated to crystal clear waters and bright sandy beaches. Ashore you can walk amongst the island’s old eerie ruins. The island has been uninhabited since 1855, so don’t expect any facilities!
The Cove | Teän
I’m not entirely sure what this bay on the North of the uninhabited island of Teän is called, but we like to call it “The Cove”. Picking your way through the rocks can be challenging, but the rewards are great. Not a sole around, but plenty of fish to catch!
Old Grimsby | Tresco
Head away from the busier side of the main island of Tresco to Old Grimsby. Out here, you’re treated to stretches of golden sand dunes towering over pristine beaches. The experience is usually flat, clam and idyllic.
