Discover the Magic of Easter on the Isles of Scilly

The Isles of Scilly have a natural pull that draws you into them, with its beautiful flora and fauna all over the islands, scenic walking trails and breathtaking beaches. Spring is a lovely time to visit the islands as there are plenty of pretty flowers out, nice and mild and sunny weather, and the streets and beaches are much calmer and less crowded than later in the year.

An Easter escape in paradise is just the ticket after a cold winter. Easter is a time for families to come together and create cherished memories in a beautiful setting. What better place to do so than on the picturesque Isles of Scilly? The islands offer the perfect destination for a memorable holiday with your loved ones. Take a look at our accommodation in the Isles of Scilly - come and relax and unwind whilst enjoying the magic of Easter and the delicious chocolate eggs that come with it.

Family Adventures Await: Explore St Mary's, Horse Ride on the Beach, and Discover Uninhabited Islands!

There are plenty of fun activities to experience with your little ones, whether hiring bikes for the day and exploring the island of St Mary's or horse riding on the beach. You can also hire your own small boat to go seal watching and get up close to some of the many uninhabited islands. There are daily boat trips to visit the other islands, which all host breathtaking views from coastal walks and stunning sandy beaches. The Tresco Abbey Gardens is always worth a visit as well.

There are many beautiful spots to plan the perfect Easter egg hunt, whether in the charming woods or on the beach.

Why not combine an Easter egg hunt and a scavenger hunt? Overturned small boats on the beach provide the perfect hiding space for those Easter eggs. The Island churches put on lovely Easter Sunday church services as well, so you don't miss out, and visitors are always welcome.

In the weeks leading up to Easter, exactly what is on offer over the weekend will be advertised, but be sure to find many activities of interest for the whole family. Movie nights down the pub, easter egg hunts in the park for the kids and church services for the whole family. Local chocolate makers provide sweet treats, too, to enjoy over your Easter break.
