May Half Term Cottages

By late May the sea has warmed enough to be able to take a dip, have a surf or explore the coastline by Kayak or Paddleboard. The Isle of Wight is famous for its dramatic coastline and beaches and there’s always somewhere new to explore each time you visit.

The beaches themselves are varied, with predominantly sandy beaches along the south coast and more rocky beaches (perfect for crabbing) along the northern coast, particularly in the north east of the Island. Any budding fossil hunters will be spoilt for choice of areas to forage for hidden specimens, but the best spots are between Atherfield and Brook.

In addition to the usual tourist hot-spots such as Robin Hill, Blackgang chine, and Amazon world, we also have many areas where you can escape the crowds and enjoy the wonderful nature of the Island.
