We walked from Sandown to Ventnor, had a coffee break at Shanklin then continued to Ventnor. This was further than we envisaged and is up and down, and muddy in places. Unfortunately when we came off the cliff onto the promenade just outside Ventnor the weather was atrocious. Rain lashed down and the sea crashed to the left of us,... More

You can dip in and out of this excellent pathway and it good for walkers and cyclists ( in most areas) alike ! Gets quite busy in the summer season with lots of people doing the path. Pick your ara carfeully some are a lot better than others - I loved the Bembridge area in particular .

We were on a day trip to the Isleof Wight and took the Needles Breezer trip, getting off at Totand Bay, intending to walk along the beach to the next stop at Colwell Chine. The beach was disappointing and there was a sign saying footpath closed. On our way back to the bus stop we crossed the Coastal Path so... More

we had some mixed experiences while walking the coastal path on the isle of wight this june, because sometimes one cannot see the sea for longer periods of time. however, we also found some amazing routes which were simply breathtaking. I would highly recommend walking from Ventnor towards Niton. One of the most beautiful places I have ever been to,... More

The walks are stunning but not for the faint hearted, they are the steepest climbs. But the walks are lovely.

We have now walked from Chale anti clockwise to Yarmouth about 2/3 of the island. We have found that the path is for the most part very well sign posted, there are several online resources that give directions, make sure you check current diversions & I would also carry an OS map (OL29) with you just in case! The walk... More

We left the car at Brading station - walked across the wetlands and up Culver Hill to get to the coastal path which we followed into Ryde. It was a glorious early summer day in June 2015 and we were blessed with warm weather and a fantastic view across the solent. There were loads of places tostop off to eat... More

Yesterday I ran the Isle of Wight cross country Needles half Marathon. This race started and finished at the West Wight Sports centre which I have reviewed. A large part of the 21.1 km route took in the coastal footpath from Yarmouth to Totland to The Battery over the Needles headland over Tennyson Down past the monument and down into... More

We loved these trails and walks along the cliffs and areas around Shanklin. The island is very dog friendly and our 2 boys thoroughly enjoyed their time here ! It was only sunny and great weather when we were there but imagine it would be lovely with something to offer at various times of the year.
