Island Cycling – the ideal way to explore

Whether you’re a lover of Lycra, a muddy mountain-biker or a country-lanes cruiser you’ll find perfect cycle lanes and wonderful off-road trails on the island. Take the chain-ferry across the Medina to join the level cycle path all the way to Sandown and beyond.

Couple and bike eating

Provisioning on the Island

Walk to Waitrose, or nip up to Nisa (just a short trot up Alfred Street) and pick up everything you need. For the more adventurous there’s locally produced garlic, blue cheese, Briddlesford halloumi, Adgestone wines, Goddards Beer and not forgetting Mermaid gin.

Nautical Retail Therapy

Cowes High Street is positively awash with all the best yachting brands to deck yourself out in style – after all that hard work there’s a plethora of bars, cafés and restaurants to slake your thirst and satisfy your hunger.

Walking on the Island

Take on the full 68 mile Coastal path, or just ramble from beach to pub to hill to harbour. The Island has so many great walks criss-crossing the island, the only problem is to decide which ones to do – luckily we can help with that!

Fun family things to do

With so many attractions, it’s hard to know where to start. There’s Osborne House (just 20 minutes walk away) the Monkey Haven, Robin Hill, Blackgang Chine, East Cowes Esplanade, beaches galore, and a cracking bus service to get you there, or we can have a hire car delivered to the marina.

A little something for everyone
