My parents have been visiting Scilly for 40 years, and this has been my mum's favourite beach for that entire time. You couldn't ask for a better place to spend a few hours, whether the weather is nice and sunny or otherwise.

Just a short walk from Hell Bay hotel, Rushy Bay is ideally situated for a relaxing hour or so just watching the boats go by. It was never busy on our visits so was always quiet and peaceful.

This is a lovely little beach on Bryher in the Scilly Isles, quiet and peaceful with gorgeous clear water. There were even a couple of seals about 30 meters offshore that we enjoyed watching for a while.

This is the place to go if you want to get away from the strains of modern city life. Turquoise seas, dazzling white, soft sand and quiet.

This has to be our favourite beach in the Isles of Scilly! White sands, turquoise waters, rocks for the kids to explore and dive in from, quiet, beautiful views. Paradise!

Why go to the Caribbean when you can get views like this? Blue seas, white sands and the pleasure of knowing that you're still in the UK. It doesn't get much better.

A beautiful beach with plenty of shelter (depending on which way the wind is blowing!). White sand, crystal clear waters and beautiful views over to Samson. Why go long haul when you can come here :-) It is a lovely walk to get here too,...More

Sat here among the rushes and did a watercolour. Very relaxing and extremely pretty! Would have loved to go in for a dip but I think the water was barely above freezing! Shall return in October next year when the water has had a chance...More
