Walking Isle of Wight Coastal Path
The captivating landscape and relaxing pace of life make the Isle of Wight a perfect walking holiday for the whole family.
The Isle of Wight Coastal Path is approximately 70 miles (112 km) and a delight to walk whether you are a seasoned walker or less experienced.
On your walking holiday you experience the invigorating air, quality of light and enchanting scenery have drawn, artists and poets, writers and scientists alike.
Stretches of designated“Heritage Coast” cover nearly half the island’s 60-mile (97 km) coastline – a designation only applied to coastlines of the highest quality, and unspoilt nature.
Your walking holiday takes in the Tennyson Heritage Coast from St Lawrence to Freshwater, along the island’s southern coastline. Admire the coloured sandstone cliffs at Alum Bay, explore the famous Needles and see the towering chalk cliffs at Freshwater Bay.
Sections of the walk are an ornithologist’s delight, as the combination of marshland, mud-flats and sands attract a wide variety of birds.
Yarmouth Castle, Osbourne House (Queen Victoria’s country retreat), Tennyson’s monument, castles, abbeys, churches, yellow sandy beaches, and even wine-tasting are all to be enjoyed on this fascinating walk.
