The Isle of Wight region
The East of the Isle of Wight incorporates some of the most stunning beaches the Island has to offer. There are pretty villages with butchers, bakers and deli's selling delicious locally produced fayre. The beach stretches from Ryde right around the coast to Shanklin and inland offers some of the most beautiful countryside.
Appley Beach, with its six miles of beautiful sandy beach and wonderful play area for children situated within the woodland behind and a 9 hole golf course. Beyond Appley Tower to the East, dogs are permitted and there are two good beach restaurants either end of the beach.
Arreton has a feast of attractions including The Barns and Craft Village, Arreton Manor and Amazon World. Nearby is the popular Robin Hill Adventure Park with exciting rides and a 400m toboggan run. This is a really fun day out for all the family. Nearer the coast is the Bembridge Windmill and the Seaview Wildlife Encounter. The steam railway offers rides on the steam engines and puff their way through the pretty countryside.
Hiring bikes is easy and the Island is a place of destination for keen bikers and family enthusiasts. There are also a few riding stables to choose from around the island from where you can either hack through country side or along beaches. Photographers and walkers won't be disappointed and historians are also indulged with our castles and roman villas. Sailing, fishing and wonderful places to walk dogs and fly kites, there's something for everyone.
St Helens, Isle of Wight
During very low tides, you will see a ribbon of people walking the famous Fort Walk from the village of Bembridge to the Fort out in the Solent. There are coastal walks along the beaches which can be enjoyed as well as bridle paths along the downs taking in the breathtaking views of the patchwork countryside and out to sea.
Beaches around this part of the island change as you venture along the coast. Ryde itself enjoys 6 miles of stunning sandy beach where cricket games are played on the sand banks during very low tides. Further round the coast there are pebbled beaches, sandy beaches, great beach restaurants and pretty marinas, all this part of the coast is well worth investigating.
Places to eat
There are some great pubs, beach bars and restaurants in this area of the Island. Bembridge has the Pilot Boat, close to the sea serving excellent food with a great atmosphere, on the Duver at St Helens there is Baywatch, a beach restaurant serving good food by the sea. The trendy bars and restaurants are found mostly in Ryde, but all over the Island is enjoying serving up the local produce.
