Sandown & the Diamond Isle

Highlights: Isle of Wight Coast and Country, Alum Bay, Yarmouth, Godshill, Newport, Rosemary Vineyard, Ryde

The diamond shaped Isle of Wight has a sparkle all of its own - and is one of the UK’s sunniest and warmest spots. The sea is never far away and the views are stunning. Sandown is the largest resort on the island, with miles of golden sandy beaches and colourful gardens, and the level seafront promenade is just yards from shops, cafés and restaurants.

Chines and Needles

Our full day begins with the drive to the island’s ‘chines’. Blackgang Chine offers superb views of the cliffs and rocks that have claimed numerous ships over the centuries. We continue along the coastal road to Alum Bay, famous for its multi-coloured cliff face and views of the Needles, before visiting the port of Yarmouth.

Ryde and Wines

A half day excursion to visit Rosemary Vineyard, ideally located in 30 acres of lovely countryside producing a superb selection of English wines, liqueurs, juices and ciders. We continue to Ryde, a delightful 18th century resort, often referred to as the ‘Gateway to the Island’ due to its numerous transport links. Here there is time to enjoy the lovely sandy beach with its spectacular views across the Solent to the mainland, or you may wish to stroll along the promenade or pier. 

Gems of the Diamond Isle

A visit to the island’s capital, Newport, where there is time to enjoy the antiques and craft shopping or perhaps wander along the busy quayside. We continue to Godshill, the prettiest village on the island where there is time to explore at leisure.
