From East Cowes to St Catherine’s point, East Wight encompasses some of the busiest towns of the Isle of Wight. With the majority of the population living this side of the island, you’ll find some wonderful places to explore along the coastline and further inland. Enjoy a walk along the pier at Ryde, spot some red squirrels in the forests of Borthwood Copse, discover the Roman villa at Brading or explore the harbours of Bembridge, Seaview and St Helens.
The east of the isle can get quite busy in the summer and offers some wonderful views of the many yacht races that take place off the shores of the Isle of Wight. Seaview has the perfect view of the water from the garden at The Boathouse. Dog lovers should head to Bembridge for their year round dog friendly beaches whereas keen shoppers need look no further than Ryde for an unique collection of shops to explore.
