Walk the Isle of Wight coastal path from the Iconic Needles headland. From this popular and busy spot, you have easy access along the cliffs to the Needles viewpoint, from where you can simply explore the dramatic headland, or head further down the Tennyson Trail through Freshwater and onto the rugged northern coastline. Alternatively, you can head West through Headon Warren onto the historic West Coast, past Victoria Fort and Country Park and its views of Hurst Castle, and on towards Yarmouth. Whichever way you go, you can easily return to your start point by bus. It does get very busy here in high season so avoid obvious times or start your walk somewhere else.
