Highlights: Godshill, Ryde, Alum Bay, Shanklin Old Village, Isle of Wight Pearl, Yarmouth
With its lovely sweeping bay and miles of golden sandy beaches, it’s easy to see why Sandown is such a traditional holiday favourite. Retaining much of its Victorian atmosphere, the resort has a pier, seaside cafés, and lovely walks by the sea wall to neighbouring Shanklin and along the cliffs to Culver Down for panoramic views of the Channel. Inland the pace is relaxed and unhurried, but with many holiday attractions. Find peace and quiet, and peace of mind, on this unique holiday island.
HALF DAY: An extended half day excursion this morning as we head to Godshill, as arguably the prettiest village on the island, before heading to Ryde, a delightful 18th century town and holiday resort with spectacular views across the Solent to the mainland.
FULL DAY: Hugging the south coast of the island we begin our day with a visit to the Isle of Wight Pearl, offering a combination of beautifully created jewellery and stunning views of the coastline. We continue to Alum Bay with its famous twenty-one colour sand cliffs and views of the famous Needles, before reaching the port of Yarmouth.
HALF DAY: Along the coast road to Shanklin Old Village – a real picture postcard setting with its thatched houses, well-tended gardens, pubs, restaurants and gift shops.
