A near uninterrupted 70 or so miles of perfect walks. If you are looking to get away for a more active holiday, walking and/or cycling around the Island is a very popular choice of vacation. It's easy to hop on and off the path onto local buses if the weather turns or the feet begin to tire as well!

Although I have undertaken sections of the Isle of Wight Coastal Path, I haven't yet done all of it and would love to one day. The path consists of sixty-seven miles which can be done in anything from three days (if you are super-fit!) to a week or more. The path is mostly coastal offering spectacular views, although a little of it is on main roads and inland lanes. The trail is fairly gentle and there aren't too many steep sections. Hiking the path is a great way to get a taste of the island. Hikers can stay the night in small towns and fishing villages and also of visit many of the island's attractions en route.

The Isle of Wight is amazing. It's a small island off Portsmouth, south of England, and is one of the most laid back places in the country. The Isle of Wight Coastal Path traces the edge of the entire island, taking up 67 miles of pathway that gives you the best views and through the best landscapes on the island.
You can break up the walk in between with two nights stay at one of the villages along the way. You'll also have the chance to pass by fishing villages and markets for some of the excellent regional seafood on offer!
The path is well laid out and sign posted, easy to follow. Mostly made up of mild ascend and descends, but there are some parts that are steep.
