The Isle of Wight coastal path is a scenic and varied 70-mile route around the island. From La Falaise Car park on the western edge of Ventnor, you can head East up to the clifftops through Bonchurch to the bright lights of Shanklin Esplanade, or head West, up through St Lawrence towards St Catherine's Point. You can also explore inland for some great circular walks up on the Downs. Whichever way you go, you can easily return to your start point by bus.
