You can wander through the waterfalls and trees of the coastal ravine at Shanklin Chine, explore the Ventnor Botanic Garden, see the towering chalk stacks that make up The Needles or relax on the many unspoilt beaches around the area, such as the sleepy fishing bay at Steephill Cove or the sandy shores of Ryde Beach.
