South - East

There is lots to be done in the South side of the Isle of Wight, why not come and visit?

The South-East of the island is home to many of the most well-known holiday spots and some of the most gorgeous stretches of beach.

Sandown, Shanklin and Ventnor all sit on the gorgeous southern coastline and offer visitors incredible accommodation, amazing tourist attractions and things to do and incredible places to enjoy a fabulous bite to eat.

Attractions include the Wildheart Animal Sanctuary, Dinosaur Isle, Ventnor Botanic Gardens, Shanklin Chine and many more… why not take a look at our interactive map for ideas?

Accommodation is abundant in the south-eastern part of the island – take your pick from hotels, guesthouses, B&Bs… the choice seems almost limitless!

Holiday parks and campsites line the cliffs and coastline of the southern side of the  Island, unsurprisingly considering the breathtaking scenery of endless golden sand, deep blue seas (it’s not unusual to spot dolphins playing in the warm waters near Sandown) and sleek, graceful yachts sailing by.

If you’re needing something specific, take a look at Hartlands House; incredible self-catering apartments offering a home-from-home break for families with autistic family members.  Based in Shanklin, why not take a look at their review?  Other specialist accommodation providers can be found here.
