The West Wight has many areas of outstanding natural beauty - rolling countryside, peaceful forests, picturesque villages and breathtaking coastal scenery, such as the rugged white cliffs of Freshwater Bay, the multi-coloured sandstone cliffs of Alum Bay and of course, the famous landmark Needles rocks. '
Victorian Freshwater has the air of a town, but in fact holds the status of a village. An 18 hole golf course is superbly situated on the downs above Freshwater Bay, there are plenty of shops, and West Wight Sports Centre has a public indoor swimming pool. Freshwater Bay has a small beach and a large car park and is the ideal starting point for cliff-top walks. Inland from the bay is Afton Marsh Nature Trail.
The west coast has many beautiful beaches and most are accessible by road or from the coastal path. At Alum Bay, the Needles Park has a chairlift to the beach, from which you can see the famous coloured. Families enjoy the delightful small beach at Totland Bay and the golden sands of Colwell Bay.
