Sept :
Having relitives near Biarritz was a good reason to visit the area, one page of the best of many pics taken during a warm spell, the vastness and beauty of the area can only be appreciated by driving around, miles and miles of forest and farmland with delightful coastal towns and villages.

Ferries:

Ferry fares vary between the two companies quite a lot at times, if your travelling with a holiday company you could get a discount on your fare, don't forget to search around for the best deal, if you come over at night expect some good savings.
You MUST book in advance as both companies get very busy in high season..

Welcome:

To a collection of island pictures..

There are now over three hundred fairly large pictures on this site, from Cowes to St Cathrines lighthouse and a whole lot in between, no pic's are heavily tweaked in Photoshop so no over the top arty shots either. So pick a link and have a look at the lovely Isle of Wight.. example here

Island info:

Twenty six miles by twelve, diamond shaped..

The Island for those who may not know is situated a few miles south of Portsmouth / Southampton, ferries run constantly both car and passenger, there are a couple of small airports, no bridges or rail links to the mainland are connected, at present there are 138,000 pemanent residents which increases dramaticaly in the holiday season..

We have many nice beaches and places to just stroll about, the island is known for its coastal walks where if your keen enough you can walk around the entire coastline, stop off at numerous pubs and cafe's for a bite to eat, the whole island is crossed with hundreds of walkways inland also, quite a few cycleways as well, there are too many attractions to list here but on a rainy day you can still get out and about.
The Island is split into two halfs regarding busy and quiet areas, East Wight is the busy hotel and people side, Ryde / Sandown / Shanklin,
West Wight  Freshwater / Totland / Yarmouth etc is very much quieter and more as nature intended, the choice is yours, Cowes the most northern of towns is very busy during Cowes week (August) at other times its splendid for boat / ship watching with a nice walk to Gurnard along the prom, Ventnor now has a splendid beachfront area but has deep water, Ryde / Appley is good for toddlers as the sand stretches for hundreds of yards and is shallow..

General:

Most visited plus..

A little bit of info came my way the other day, what is the most visited place on the Island, summer and winter, its Osborne house the last residence of Queen Victoria, it has thousands of people turn up for a look every year, don't miss it..Number two is Carisbrooke castle and is also one of the best kept castles on the south coast..

On my travels around the Island I try and keep up with the latest sights. Sandown and Shanklin was my latest trip out, Shanklin was nice and sunny and warmish (May). Have a look at this page Shanklin  Perhaps I'm getting old but what do you think..

Ventnor.. one of my favourite places its sheltered most times has a nice beach and the views are fantastic, cafe's, toilets, parking, are all here take a look. Ventnor
