Lovely walk but very up and down through woody parts but really nice with the birds singing and spying the sea through the trees every now and then

Pretty walk and great variety from coastal path with stunning views to woodland wander. Took a bit longer than we expected as some climbs up and down from the beach. Not for those wanting a gentle amble but we loved it.

Saturday afternoon walk to Ventnor through the landslip. We enjoyed the walk which had a good path - though steps and uneven in places which may not be good for those with mobility issues.

Lovely beach, the shanklin beach hotel is right opposite the beach and you get just walk out of the hotel, straight onto the beach.

Luccombe hill is the hardest climb then there is a lovely undulating walk through woods, best to have good footwear though then flat at Bonchurch.

Beautiful trail run, my starve clocked it as 6.4 km, really pretty route, would say my children (5 and 9 years of age) could manage the walk easily. But you are alone, so pack snacks and drinks.

There is a lovely coastal walk to Sandown above the beach, with wonderful views. This is suitable for push chairs.
