The Isle of Wight region
One of the country's sunniest places, the Island is renowned for its holiday beaches and sailing regattas.
Over half of the Island is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty; the countryside and seascapes are stunning. With a myriad of paths, it's a walkers' and cyclists' paradise.
The geology and history of the Island are remarkable; there are white cliffs and needles. Dinosaurs were here...and Romans,...not to mention Queen Victoria and her family at Osborne.
Bembridge is a thriving village community with all the shops, takeaways, pubs and churches you would expect. But look out also for an art gallery, a fine fishmonger, a deli and three excellent beach cafes spread around the coast.
Olivine is centrally situated within easy walking distance of beaches to north, east and south. A network of footpaths and unmade back roads criss-cross the village. At high tide, the harbour is buzzing with local dinghy racers and visiting mainland yachtsmen. When the tide is out, rock pools and coastal walks beckon.
The beaches are quiet with sand and rockpools and the countryside and foreshore are littered with Sites of Special Scientific Interest for their biological and geological features.
There are much recommended local eateries; try the Crab and Lobster for a seafood lunch on the cliff overlooking Bembridge Ledge or treat yourself to seriously enjoyable dining at Lockslane Contemporary Bistro.
