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.
