Isle of Wight
With 57 miles of different coastlines, the Island is full of beautiful beaches! The Isle of Wight was awarded an impressive 17 Blue Flag and Seaside Awards in 2013 altogether which is more than anywhere else in England. No matter what type of beach you want, guaranteed you can find it here; from sand and shingle beaches, rugged cliffs, hidden coves and clear waters, the Isle of Wight has it all!
If sea life and wild life is what you love, then you must go to Seaview Wildlife Encounter, packed full with unbelievably tame furry and feathered animals. The park even offers one-to-one Penguin and Meerkat Encounters for the best hands on experience for all the family. Situated near the beautiful yachting village of Seaview, this beautiful park is set in beautiful, open and all natural parklands, with absolutely stunning views across the Solent waters.
Godshill Model Village is a brilliant experience! No detail has been spared as even the houses are fantastic replicas of the real buildings, made with sand and cement so they weather as they age. You can also enjoy beautiful detailed gardens boasting 3000 ornamental conifers and shrubs! Why not take a look around the real village and then see how the Model Village compares?
If you’re a shopaholic, then you’re in luck if you’re off to The Isle of Wight! Full of every shop you can imagine, from arts and crafts outlets that sell everything from unique jewelry and sculptured glass to handcrafted wood carvings. If its food and drink shopping you love, there is loads of shop selling local produce and weekly farmers markets.
With the beautiful coast and warm temperatures, the Isle of Wight is the perfect place to get active and go outdoors! Whether you love walking, cycling or horse-riding you can do it all here! With over 500 miles of footpaths and established walking routes and more than 165 miles of bridleways just waiting to be discovered! Why not take a walk in the stunning countryside, take in the sea air and see which of the beautiful animals you can see on your way? The Isle of Wight is home to some unique butterflies and the increasingly rare red squirrels!
If you want something more adventurous, there are more extreme sports available including tree climbing, paragliding and sailing! Or if you want something more chilled out, why not enjoy a relaxing day fishing or a lovely game of golf on one of the many different golf courses including Jungle Golf and Crazy Golf.
