Your Isle of Wight holiday starts on board our ferry, with summer short stay sailings from £78.

Entertain the kids on the ferry with our dedicated play areas, feast on local cuisine from one of our Wight Taste cafes and take in the stunning views across the Solent from our sun decks.

Your tropical Island getaway

A hidden gem that’s only 22 minutes away from the coast of Hampshire, the Isle of Wight has all the charm (and sun!) of any Mediterranean Island and there’s no shortage of things to do.

If you’re after a relaxing, sun-soaking break then you’re in luck – there’s a sandy beach around every corner here.

And if you want something a little more active, tackle over 200 miles of cycle routes and 500 miles of footpaths, most with stunning coastal views that will take your breath away.

Soak up some culture, too, with a visit to one of the Diamond Isle’s many historical landmarks, including Queen Victoria’s holiday home, a rocket testing site and, of course, the famous chalk stacks and lighthouse, The Needles.
