For those on the lookout for adult weekend breaks, the Isle of Wight offers a perfect mix of music and sightseeing with its Big Winter Warmer 60s and 70s Festival held at Warner Norton Grange. This place is a fantastic location for a weekend of music, and being such a picturesque location, you shouldn’t miss out on exploring the area while you’re there. |
The Isle of Wight’s coastline is so varied that it offers everything from coves and sandy beaches to rock pools and plenty more. Surfers can explore the beaches in the west while the beaches at Appley in Ryde are great for picnics and paddling due to the low tides.
The landscape is vastly diverse; as such, each beach from Sandown and Shanklin in the eastern areas to Freshwater and Compton Bay in West Wight differ greatly.
Nature and Wildlife
This stunning landscape makes it the perfect location for countryside walks where you can explore the local nature and catch a glimpse of the wildlife, which ranges from red squirrels to some very unique butterfly species that are hard to catch elsewhere!
The Isle of Wight is also an amazing spot for birdwatching due to the span of species that inhabit the island.
Hiking and Cycling
On a yearly basis, thousands of visitors come to the island to hike across the endless network of footpaths and trails. Each May, the Walking Festival hosts guided walks across historic trails and hikes through some of the scenic landscape.
Over half of the Island has been designated as an Area of Outstanding Beauty, which proves the sights are too good to miss! One of the more challenging hikes is from the Freshwater Bay to the Needles (a famous landmark), and this circular route will be sure to put you to the test.
The Isle of Wight also boasts a fantastic range of shops that include high street bands as well as local boutiques. With small towns and quaint villages dotted across the island, there is plenty to explore through the small town roads.
The seaside resort Shanklin includes its own Old Village with traditional thatched cottages alongside tea rooms, cafés and gift shops.
Across the town centres, a day can be spent browsing the local shops selling clothing, gifts and homeware, as well as visiting charming vintage and antique stores or traditional farmers markets.
Get Ready to Go
When considering a visit to the Isle of Wight, the first port-of-call should be booking adult weekend breaks – or even longer holidays – with a specialist company so a perfect balance of music and sightseeing can be organised specifically for you.
