How To Plan One of The Best Isle of Wight Activity Holidays

People go on holiday for many different reasons and whilst some may be wanting a relaxing break from their stressful day-to-day lives, others will be wanting an exciting activity holiday. Thankfully, somewhere like the Isle of Wight is able to meet all types of holidaymakers needs, so it doesn’t matter what you’re wanting to get out of your trip, it is easy to plan the perfect getaway when you choose the Isle of Wight as your holiday destination.

When it comes to planning Isle of Wight activity holidays, you may feel slightly out of your depth and unless you have a good understanding of the local area, you may be struggling to arrange everything for your trip. So, to help anyone who is attempting to plan one of the best Isle of Wight activity holidays, below is some information that you may find useful. Let us help you organise an unforgettable getaway.


Choosing where to stay

Thankfully, the island is fairly small, so wherever you choose to stay, you will only be a car journey away from sandy beaches with coastal paths or woodland areas with cycling routes. However, if you’re hoping to roll out of bed and be able to undertake brilliant activities on your doorstep, then you may want to think carefully about where to stay.

Whether you stay in the north, south, east, west or even central Wight, there are plenty of incredible accommodation options. So, to narrow things down, you’re best to look at the location of the activities you’re interested in before deciding on a base location for your trip. Even if you’re interested in specific accommodation, such as glamping or holiday lodges, you will still have plenty of options to choose from all over the island.


Booking different activities

You will find that when you start looking at the many different activities that the Isle of Wight has to offer, there are far too many to consider all at once. So, the easiest way to decide what you want to do is to break these activities down into smaller categories, such as;


Cycling activities

With 200 miles of cycle tracks, byways and bridleways on the island for you to investigate, you won’t struggle to find somewhere to go on your bikes. There are a few brilliant circular cycle routes, so these are definitely worthwhile looking into further if you’re interested in organising some cycling activities.


Walking activities

There are miles of accessible footpaths on the Isle of Wight no matter where you’re staying and it is easy to plan interesting walks with stunning views for all fitness abilities. With walks both in the countryside and along the coast, think about which you’d prefer, this will narrow down the many options you have.


Beach activities

Of course, due to the fact that the Isle of Wight is an island with 57 miles of coastline, you have plenty of beaches to choose from. You will find that some beaches offer more activities than others, such as sailing, paragliding and kitesurfing, so take a look at what is being offered before choosing which beaches to visit.


Adventure activities

When looking specifically for adventure activities to book for your holiday, you will be spoilt for choice. From on land activities such as tree climbing to water sports activities such as power boating, there is something for everyone. You may want to look at specific activity centres too, like Tackt-Isle, that can provide lots of different activities.


Finding the best places to refuel

Remember to take a look at local places to eat and drink too, especially if you plan on being out and about all day. Again, you won’t struggle to find somewhere to refuel no matter where you are on the island, but when planning your days, it is always beneficial to have somewhere specific in mind to go when you get hungry.


Planning an Isle of Wight activity holiday

Hopefully, with the help of the information above, you will find it slightly easier to arrange all of the different aspects of your Isle of Wight activity holiday.
