Isle of Wight Day Walks

Isle of Wight Isle of Wight

In addition to the Isle of Wight Coast Path, the Isle of Wight County Council defines eight one-day walks that venture away from the coast, though all of them do connect with the Coast Path. These walks vary in length from 11.7km to 23km.

The council publishes detailed leaflets for each walk, and these are also available online. These eight walks are also well covered in A Walker's Guide to the Isle of Wight, written by Martin Collins and Norman Birch and published by Cicerone.
