Things to do in the Isle of Wight

With so much to do on the Isle of Wight, you’ll want to come back every year. The beaches and seafront promenades, such as sandy Shanklin and Ventnor Beach, are dotted with vintage beach huts, quaint cafes and restaurants.

You can still see dinosaur remains and fossils in areas like Compton Bay and Yaverland Beach. On the island’s western point, you’ll see the world-famous Needles, which are white chalk rock formations guarded by a 19th century lighthouse.
