Holidays are back on the cards and there is no one way to holiday on the Isle of Wight. If you’re into outdoor adventure, England’s closest island in the Channel (and, thanks to its unique microclimate, the UK’s sunniest spot) is one big playground. It also serves up scoopfuls of seaside kitsch and chocolate box village vibes, while its burgeoning restaurant scene and boom in local producers, brewers and distillers has made it a foodie destination. Locals are incredibly passionate about their island identity, and after spending a day discovering its best bits, it’s easy to see why. Just hop on a Wightlink ferry from the mainland to discover this special island.
