Summer Solstice is upon us, which can mean only one thing… the summer really is here on the Isle of Wight and even the weatherman agrees with us.  The Isle of Wight is a beautiful place to visit year round, but during the summer you’d need a good excuse not to visit!  We’ve put together our top things to not miss out on this summer on the Isle of Wight.

Our beaches are pretty spectacular all year round, but really do become their best during the summer.  As well as some of the best beaches in the UK, the massive variety of beaches we have is unparalleled to many places in the UK. Whether its beaches for sitting on, beaches for walking on, beaches for swimming, beaches for surfing, beaches for dogs, you name it, we probably have a beach for it. Whatever the weather, they are always open.

If taking it leisurely isn’t your style, then take advantage of the over 500 miles of walking routes and 200 miles of cycle paths, traversing woodlands, countryside and coast. Hike across our chalk downs, cruise through farmland or stroll along our promenades, there is something for everyone.

Worn out after all that exploring?  The Isle of Wight is the perfect foodie-destination year-round, but you’ll find a number of seasonal restaurants and cafes that make the most of our Isle of Wight local produce.  The Isle of Wight is fast becoming the foodie capital of the south-coast. Local produce abounds thanks to our fertile soils and extra hours of sunshine. From country pubs, coastal cafes, fancy-pants dining and everything in between, you can certainly get your fill.

Got Instagram-envy, the perfect remedy is a visit to the Isle of Wight, with a whole host of places to get that perfect shot from quaint villages complete with chocolate box cottages; wild and rugged seas and our spectacular sunsets all make for instagram-worthy snaps to show the folks back home.
