Just a smidgeon short of 150 square miles and perched a mere 3 or 4 miles off the Southern English coast this Magical Island offers so much to so many people.
With a number of beautiful and notable holiday resorts, holidaymakers can enjoy so many aspects of old English traditional holidays yet also take advantage of the numerous countryside walks, magnificent views and historic remains of yesteryear that appeal to all generations.
The pure joy of travelling at a pace not welcomed on the mainland is quite unique in itself, but add the power of a tropical climate that enhances all manner of floral wild life, beaches that are maintained to high British standards and the generous affability of island residents and visitors soon become entranced with island life on this Magical Island.
Many generations have visited these shores and fully enjoyed their family holidays and although each new generation naturally acquires a change in tastes, the Isle of Wight proves time and time again that it can still satisfy those changes and offer the very best value to our visitors.
There are of course so many places to see and enjoy. Visitors may want to simply play on the beach, walk the many by-ways, cycle the special tracks or simply travel the island taking in its lovely surroundings. All of these benefits are available to enjoy. In addition this magical island also offers wonderful historic attractions such as Osborne House, Carisbrooke Castle, Brading Roman Villa, Shanklin Chine, Quarr Abbey, The Needles and more.
Whilst islanders may be happy that heavy commercialisation of their tourism industry is not rife, there are still modern attractions built to provide fun and enjoyment at a level more cognisant of the 21st century. Blackgang Chine, Robin Hill and Amazon World are but a few. All of which provide entertainment and a learning experience for all to enjoy.
