1. Isle of Wight Beaches

Beaches are the Isle of Wight's trump card in my view, because of its remarkably varied 65 mile coastline.

There are multiple currents and even climates, so you can plump for whatever you feel like when you wake up (unless you're following the system where each member of the family gets to choose a day's activities, so you end up wasting the sunniest day of the week in a ball pit).

Brook Chine

Fancy a wide open sandy beach, like the North East coast? The Isle of Wight's got Appley which is a massive playground for beachgoers at low tide.

How about a Cornish-style surfing or bodyboarding beach? Try Compton Bay on the West coast. There's a brilliant rockpooling beach (Bembridge), a couple of mini-Blackpool style beaches with kiss-me-quick hats and chips on a bench (Sandown and Shanklin), secluded coves (Steephill near Ventnor is nice), a busy shipping lane (Cowes) and so on.

As a general rule, the Isle of Wight does things a bit smaller than other places. Dedicated surfers will tell you that the waves are usually not as big as they are in parts of Cornwall, and I expect the souvenirs are ever so slightly tackier in Blackpool. But if you want a varied holiday, rather than just one stretch of coast then consider the Isle of Wight.

See our guide to the Isle of Wight's best beaches for more information.

2. Isle of Wight Attractions

For its size, the Isle of Wight is very well equipped for summer attractions, with a good mix of adventure parks and zoos as well as historic things like castles, stately homes, museums, lighthouses and roman villas. There's certainly enough to see a good quality attraction every day for a couple of weeks, perhaps more, and there are also quirky things to do and free days out.

Bembridge Lifeboat Station

The Isle of Wight's attractions are on a small and medium scale, rather than massive great theme parks with vomit-inducing rides. If you're expecting Alton Towers, London Zoo or the British Museum you'll be disappointed, but if you're expecting something a bit more modest and less corporate then you'll be impressed. If you're trying to entertain teenagers, I suggest you start looking at adventure activities and other similar ideas.

Expect to pay about £5 - £15 to get into an attraction on the Isle of Wight, rather than £20 - £30 which you'll pay for bigger attractions on the mainland nowadays.

3. Getting around on the Isle of Wight

Another plus point for the Isle of Wight is that you won't spend the whole week in the car. From the centre of the Isle of Wight, you can't really drive for more than about 25 - 30 minutes without ending up in the sea, so you shouldn't have massive great journeys every morning.

The roads are a bit wiggly, so you'll drive at 35 miles per hour for most of the week. There aren't many trains, but there are buses which are good value if you travel as a group. We prefer to use the car, but you can still get around if you don't have that luxury (see our guide to public transport).

4. Food and drink on the Isle of Wight

You'll see a lot of garlic, some crab on chips, various local ales, some local wine, loads of local seafood and Minghella's Ice Cream but there isn't a food or drink which all visitors feel they have to try whilst on holiday (unlike the Cornish Pasty or the Eccles Cake for example).

However, there are a fantastic range of places to eat on the Isle of Wight, from the very cheap through to the posh nosh type places, which are usually overlooking the sea.
