Surf at Compton Bay quite near the Needles – the surf dudes beach – with a nice ice cream van in the car park. Further along, Dinosaur footprints are visible in the rocks – organised tours are also available.
If your kids aren’t so keen on walking – have you tried Geocaching? It’s basically a hi-tech treasure hunt – done from your smart phone/GPS. Just download the free app – press search and you will find a wealth of caches all over the Island waiting to be found.
There are plenty of places to hire bikes throughout the Island, including Cowes . You can even have electric bikes delivered to you ( over 14yrs only). There are plenty of great Cycle routes all over the Island. Cycling along the river from Cowes is lovely, and easy – take a picnic maybe and eat by the river.
If you hire bikes from The Bike Shed in Merstone ( outside Newport) you can cycle along a picturesque and flat old railway track right across to the south of the Island. Again taking a picnic is advisable.
