The Robert Hooke Trail
The Robert Hooke Trail takes us along the coastal path, then down the estuary to the Causeway with stunning views of the River Yar;
Ventnor to St. Lawrence Coastal Circular Walk
This walk ticks all the boxes! From beautiful beaches (including what I think are some of the prettiest coves on the Island) to lofty clifftop views, this loop is a real pleasure to deliver and do!
Borthwood Copse to Alverstone Circular
Borthwood Copse to Alverstone is a lovely simple walk along well defined non-muddy footpaths – quite difficult to come by at this time of the year. I enjoyed this walk a lot more than I had anticipated
The Barnsley Trail
The Barnsley Trail walk has several things going for it.
- Starts and ends at a pub
- It’s nice mixture of rural and coastal walking
- Easy walking but with lots of local interesting information.
- Plenty of car parking space. No. 8 bus drops you off right by the start.
- I enjoyed this walk more than I thought I was going to!
The Warrior Trail
This beautiful walk starts at the Mottistone Estate car park and loops down to the coast where, at low tide, the most magnificent dinosaur foot casts can be seen.
SHANKLIN TO LANDSLIP WALK
October 9 Shanklin to Landslip. My first walk for Isle of Wight Walking Festival as Walk Leader and it was brilliant, the most fun I’ve had in ages! The sun shone all day and everyone was still smiling at the end!
SMUGGLERS INN WALK.
Sunday 17th of October, Great circular walk from stunning viewpoint to Niton (White Lion and Buddle Inn, via tunnels) and back along the coastal path, with optional Wight Mouse at the end.
Shanklin to Luccombe Low-tide
This walk is only possible at certain times of the day as the sea comes right up to the base of the cliffs and, beautiful as they are, you wouldn’t want to have to call on the coastal helicopter!
THE BEAUTIFUL SHANKLIN CIRCULAR WALK
So much to see and do – including sampling one of 44 flavours of ice cream along the sea front!
Always magnificent especially at low tide where fabulous rock pools emerge. The cliff faces and rock formations are breathtaking – especially ‘that building’ teetering on the very edge’ ..!
Around Carisbrooke Castle.
The views from the ramparts are just stunning of the local countryside – a lovely walk from the castle takes you up onto Tennyson Down and back.
Shanklin to Bonchurch circular
One of my favourites – featured on the first day of the Walking Festival
Seaview to St Helens Fort
l lucked out on an exceptionally low tide and was able to walk all the way out to St. Helens Fort.
Bembridge Harbour to Lifeboat
Finding out all about the RNIB makes the walk to the end of the pier more than worth it.
Colwell, Totland, Alum Bay (and the Needles) and back.
A walk of great variety, with beautiful beaches, heathland, and stunning coastal vistas. This walk has it all!
Duver to St. Helens and back
Beautiful beach, ‘raised pathway across the water’ and the pretty harbour with some very fine boathouses – that you can stay in!
Fort Victoria Country Park and Yarmouth
Fort Victoria Country Park and Yarmouth. The walk can be done just taking in the Park and nearby Yarmouth; or extended for a beautiful circular up the estuary
Seaview to Ryde
Seaview to Ryde is a fab walk including beach, tower, hovercraft port, pier, and not forgetting that ‘Nice Rink’! Visit the Nature Reserve, stop at beach or harbourside café, and walk around Seaview all optional extras
photos of poppies
These photos of poppies were taken along the coastal path on land just above Luccombe Bay.
Yaverland to Culver Down Circular
This walk has a gentle climb at the beginning, stunning coastal views in both directions at the top towards Bembridge and Sandown plus an optional return along the beach (depending on conditions).
a Stroll Around St. Helens
The walk takes in a walk through the woods, across the causeway at Bembridge Harbour and back, with an optional additional loop to the Duver and back. It is easy walking but with plenty to see – bring your binoculars for sea birds and eagles!
