Isle of Wight Coastal Path - 9 Days & 8 Nights

  • Follow the coastal path along deserted sandy beaches and hidden bays
  • Marvel at the island's iconic landmark 'The Needles' chalk rocks
  • Stay in bustling harbour towns where a warm welcome is guaranteed
  • Admire the white cliffs and far-reaching views from Tennyson Down
  • Hunt for prehistoric fossils on deserted sandy beaches
With over half of the island designated as an Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty, almost 30 miles of heritage coast and an abundance of sunshine make the Isle of Wight a very appealing and welcoming destination in Britain. Add to this the wonderful 67-mile coastal path circumnavigating the island and you have a walker's paradise just waiting to be explored. Starting in the historic town of Ryde and following the coast in an anti-clockwise direction prepare to splendour in the delights the Isle of Wight has to offer. The unspoilt landscape has so much to offer, you can visit the blue flag beaches at Sandown, Shanklin and Ventnor and wander through the charming towns of Cowes and Yarmouth. Escape into the wide open spaces of Tennyson Down, watch the wildlife of the West Wight and Bembridge, and wonder at the natural beauty of the estuaries in the north and the rolling downs running south to the sea.
