I have now walked the entire coastal path twice, and would do it again, the views are stunning, and it gives you a chance to see places that you would'nt if in a car. The path has been washed away in a couple of places, i.e Totland Bay, but is diverted and we found at one point the trees had... More

The Isle of Wight is well known for its stunning scenery and views. The views from St Catherine's are among the most extensive on the Isle of Wight. It is also a very easily accessible coast/hill walk. The start point is at The "Viewpoint Car Park" above Blackgang Chine , the Pleasure Park. This car park has a regular bus... More

The costal path around the island especially on the south side offers spectacular views and stunning scenery. For hardened walkers or holidaymakers, the paths suit everyone. A must for photographers and nature lovers. Passing places like niton, ventnor, shanklin it really is a fantastic walk, even if you only walk parts of it. A must for any visitor to the... More

Gentle rolling downland to walk over in West Wight over Tennyson Down from the Needles. The views are breath-taking and words really fail to do it all justice. The path is clearly marked and the going quite easy. Well worth taking a camera for photos.

We walked round the Island coastal path over four days this summer. It was stunning (most of the time) and the weather was perfect. The path between Colwell and Totland pier has since been reopened - which means you don't have to walk through the houses. The walk between Binstead and East Cowes is rather dull. But most of the...

We visited in late September and had a great few days of warm sunny weather. The seas were choppy on a couple of days and made parts of the walk subject to heavy sea spray. Terrific and dramatic views as well as nice beaches all around, something to see at many points on the island.

If you've never been to the aisle Of Wight your missing out on a hidden treasure. Walking the coastal paths of the Island is simply stunning. Best go when it's dry and clear as the views are amazing you can see for miles. Some of the cliff views are breathtaking.
