Isle of Wight Coastal Path
The Isle of Wight Coastal Path is a fantastic way to explore the Island. It is usually broken into 6 days of walking, covering 67 miles. Each section is depicted on the maps below. (Courtesy of Isle of Wight Tourism).
The walking is easy on the Isle of Wight Coastal Path with generally only mild ascents and descents to be made en route, though some are steeper. The northern sections spend more time away from the coast itself than the others, but this tends to be necessitated by the lay of the land and it happens pretty infrequently considering the rest of the route.
There is much to be seen on the Isle of Wight Coastal Path with striking chalk geology featuring heavily in the south and west. There are great views out to sea and many interesting places to visit, reflecting the island's heritage and royal patronage over the years. It should be noted that many of the cliff edges can be unstable, so you should make a point of not venturing too near to them.
