  • Activities

  • Seasons
    The climate is more temperate than on the mainland. Late spring to autumn perfect for inland walks, coastal path quite appropriate for winter (wildness, drama….) Some inland walks can be very muddy in winter.
  • Centres
    Sandown, Shanklin, Ventnor, Godshill, Ryde, Yarmouth, Newport
  • Difficulty
