Planning your next summer family adventure? This year, look no further than the Isle of Wight,
the destination on your doorstep. The island offers families of all ages the chance to have exciting adventures and create shared memories galore, with miles of beautiful countryside and coastline to be explored and discovered.

Escape the mainland to try something new – how about archery, aqua-zorbing or bushcraft? – and bring your bikes along (or rent some) to explore the island’s cycling trails. From gentle woodland rides to more challenging rugged terrains, there’s something for all abilities and ages to enjoy.

And no Isle of Wight adventure is complete without a visit to one of the many award-winning beaches on the island’s
50 miles of coastline. A host of watersports are available – kayaking, boogieboarding and sailing, to name just a few – from a multitude of expert companies.

After a day of action and adventure, you’ll need somewhere comfortable to relax and rest your heads. From campsites to cosy cottages, boutique B&Bs to hotels, there is plenty of choice for all budgets.

This summer, there’s also a new kid in town. Away Resorts has reinvented the static caravan with its TriBeCa at Whitecliff Bay Holiday Park. This innovative accommodation for families is revolutionising the way people view caravan holidays. With New York-loft-style interiors, high ceilings, an adventure- themed bedroom especially for children, and private hot tub, the TriBeCa is the boutique hotel of caravan parks.

It couldn’t be easier for families to discover the island, just a hop, skip and a ferry away from the mainland, with Wightlink. So what are you waiting for? Book your summer adventure on the Isle of Wight now and get ready to experience a fantastic family holiday that you will all remember for the rest of your lives.
