With a varied and fascinating coastline of 60 miles, the Isle of Wight is bigger than many outsiders expect.

Safe, quiet and untroubled by mountains or wilderness areas, it has become one of England’s most popular walking destinations.

There are no motorways or cities to avoid, instead expect peaceful, pretty landscapes, yachting harbours and wooded estuaries, old-fashioned seaside towns and rolling downland.

There are the obvious – and often busy – walking hotspots, but also myriad quieter corners that even few native Brits are familiar more
