In my 16 years of living I haven't visited a lot of places but there is one particular place you should definitely visit.

The atmosphere of the islands captures me every time. We always stay on the Garrison campsite on St. Mary's, the largest of the 5 inhabited islands.The group I go with take up a whole camping field. In the evenings we sit around and drink tea, if it's raining we take our tea and chairs inside one of our tents and we play cards. For some children of my age this doesn't seem like their dream holiday but for me this is just perfect.
These island may be small but they've got a lot going on. You won't be bored! Activities include gig racing, snorkeling, cycling, walking, swimming, sand castle making, sunset watching, ... For me this sums up a perfect holiday!
You'll meet a lot of different people: fishermen, artists, fudge makers, farmers, boatmen, boatboys,... even though they have different jobs they all have on thing in common: they all enjoy the islandlife and they're proud to call it their home.
I can go on and on for ever about the beaches, gig racing, walking, the weather etc. but I'm afraid I wouldn't be able to stop writing.
If you're interested in visiting this place go and take a look at the tourist guide website: http://www.simplyscilly.co.uk/
If you've been there before and your looking for somewhere to stay, my parents own a guesthouse on Scilly. http://strandhousestmarys.com/
