wcb-coast-1024x341Walking, we know it’s good for us, but do you really know just how good? Regular walking strengthens the heart, lowers the risk of various diseases, keeps your weight in check, tones the legs and tummy, gives an energy boost – the list goes on.

Another thing for you to know is that walking is the perfect way for you to explore the Isle of Wight, and Whitecliff Bay is the ideal base from which to begin your next adventure. Why not start with a quick hop, skip and a jump down to Whitecliff Beach? It’s directly below the north side of Culver Downs, and offers a stroll in soft sand, a nice gentle slope into the azure waters and a calming atmosphere that is sure to help any problems you have melt away.

Just a tiny bit further from the park is the charming village of Bembridge. With a population of 4,000, many residents of Bembridge have claimed over the years that their village is the largest in England. Besides the mixed pebble and sand beaches to explore in the area, the village also has a harbour and lifeboat centre, which are great places to visit for those interested in all things nautical.

The Isle of Wight offers walkers hundreds of options when it comes to paths, trails and hiking routes. Anyone really serious about extensively exploring the Isle of Wight simply cannot miss the Isle of Wight Walking Festival. In 2015, the festival will be held from May 2nd to 17th, and this year is its 17th anniversary. With more than 200 walks available, walkers of all ages and fitness levels can find the ideal choice of walk for them.

Finally, for those wishing to combine a lovely walk with their hobby of bird watching, Brading Marshes is the place for you. With free entry (donations optional), this RSPB reserve houses cuckoos, chiffchaffs, blackcaps and many more birds that will all be available to view during the spring months. The reserve also offers guided walks to those wishing to get the most out of what the area has to offer.
