The Isle of Wight is home to some of the most diverse countryside in the UK, and what better way to unwind than to get out into the fresh air and explore?

Whether you prefer a leisurely stroll or something more energetic, you can discover historic farms, pretty lanes, thatched villages, coastal trails and woodlands. It's easy to find your way around, with over 500 miles of carefully maintained footpaths and signposts to follow. Walking, cycling and bird watching are popular all year round and every May the Island hosts the UK's largest walking festival.

Whatever you choose to do - whether it's following a pub walk, hiring bikes, or wandering along secluded coves - your time on the Isle of Wight is something the whole family will enjoy.

No motorways, cities or pollution...just nature, simple and unspoilt. One of Britain's natural wonders, it's an escape for the senses.

With over half the Island designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the natural world flourishes. There's an abundance of flora and fauna. Endangered and rare, you can seek out red squirrels, dormice, water voles, kingfishers, Ventor's wall lizards, and unique to the Island, the Glanville Fritillary butterfly.

It's an island of contrasts. Rolling downs and broad estuaries in the north give way to the south's sea-beaten cliffs. World-famous natural landmarks like the Needles sit alongside thatched cottages in forgotten inland villages. And when autumn sees many visitors depart leaving deserted beaches, so flocks of migrating birds return creating a birdwatchers' paradise.

You can walk, cycle and ride without seeing a car for hours. Our Coastal Path is 67 miles long, whilst our eight inland trails - a network of well-groomed, safe footpaths and bridleways - total 500 miles. And to help keep the Island a nature reserve you can enjoy a car-free holiday. We've superb bus and ferry links, and our Baggage Transfer service will move your luggage to and from ferry ports and follow you as you explore the Island.

Only minutes away from the mainland and so easy to reach - yet the Isle of Wight is a world apart. This diamond-shaped island has a magic all of its own - and is one of the UK's sunniest and warmest places. Measuring 23 miles by 13 miles, the Island lies just off England's South Coast. But no passport is needed for the short sea crossing - and once you've landed on the Island everything is within easy reach.

Boasting award-winning beaches, unspoilt and spectacular scenery and a rich historical heritage, there are attractions, activities and adventures to suit visitors of all ages and nationalities. Discover picturesque villages, spectacular cliffs, downland, sandy beaches, rich farmlands, creeks, marshland, river valleys, and a rich diversity of wildlife, flora and fauna.

More than half the Island is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with 500 miles of award-winning public footpaths and bridleways, while almost 30 miles of its seashore is Heritage Coast.

With such a mild climate and a unique geography organic farming is booming. Farmers' markets, pubs, farms and B&Bs all offer superb local wine, real ales and ciders, honey and garlic. All this, without mention of the seafood!

Outdoor music events and theatre are a regular feature during the summer months; from Westlife at Osborne House to Shakespearean productions in the historic settings of Carisbrooke Castle or Appuldurcombe House.

Ryde Arts Festival in July in an opportunity for award-winning artists to express themselves in the Island's natural surroundings, from art on the esplanade to poetry on the pier. Indeed, the Island is a veritable hotbed of talent and both local band The Bees and Oscar-winning film director Anthony Minghella are justifiably proud of their Island roots.
