Activities on the Isle of Wight

There is a wide range of fantastic activities on the Isle of Wight covering just about anything you can think of - even as diverse as tree climbing. Whatever you enjoy, whether on land or sea, there are numerous activities on the Island to choose from. The Isle of Wight is renowned for its extreme sports, which will appeal to the ´adrenaline junkies´ amongst you. There is a huge variety of these extreme sports on offer, including surfing, water skiing, land yachting, diving, windsurfing, jet skiing, paragliding and kite surfing, to name just a few.

Activities on the Beach

If you prefer something a little more relaxing, you can indulge in a spot of clay pigeon shooting, horse-riding, or gentle sailing - on days when the sea is nice and calm. Other popular activities on the Isle of Wight include walking and cycling, which is not surprising considering the Island has over 500 miles of well-maintained and signposted footpaths and around 30 miles of Heritage Coastline. Add to this the better than average UK weather and it´s easy to see why around one million visitors flock to the Isle of Wight every year.

Jet Ski

There are many more great activities on the Isle of Wight you can choose from if none of the above "float your boat". You could try your luck at a bit of ten-pin bowling or ice-skating - you will find both on offer at Ryde, the largest town on the Island. Or maybe you prefer a ´white knuckle´ experience such as hang gliding, skydiving, parachuting or microlighting. For the holidaymaker who enjoys a more sedate activity, there is bowls, fishing, swimming or golf - there is a choice of eight golf courses on the Island. So you can see, there really is something for everyone on the Isle of Wight.
