Isle of Wight

The island has 60 miles of spectacular coastline, with picturesque coves and beautiful bays of golden sand. Inland the countryside is just as stunning, with gentle rolling hills and little lanes to explore. With over 60 miles of cycle ways, the island is a dream for cyclists too. Apart from being one of the prime places for sailing in the UK, the island offers a plethora of sporting activities from fishing and golf to windsurfing and para-gliding. History lovers will enjoy Carisbrooke Castle, and most will marvel at the extravagance of Osborne House, built for Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.
