Elections to the Isles of Scilly Council, a sui generis unitary authority in the far southwest of England, were held on 2 May 2013.

The whole council of 21 members was up for election, with thirteen members elected in the St Mary's electoral division and another eight from the 'Off Islands', being two each from Bryher, St Martin's, St Agnes and Tresco. Six of the seats for the 'Off Islands' were uncontested. For the first time, the Green Party of England and Wales put up candidates, but both were unsuccessful.

As with other unitary and county elections in England, these local elections in the Isles of Scilly took place for the first time since 1993 without a European or Westminster election on the same day.
