We recently asked our Twitter followers to tell us their favourite Isle of Wight spots and after an overwhelming response we have printed a selection below:
The Royal Hotel IOW @Royalhoteliow
alan sheath @alsbikes
@IWTourism cycling on the sea wall between sandown and shanklin, looking out to sea thinking i cant think of a better place to live.
Smugglers Cottage @ClarksCottages
@IWTourism – Our favourite spot on the diamond isle – Ventnor Downs – our beautiful Island laid out at your feet.
Nick Baker @bugboybaker
@IWTourism orchard bay below Niton – I used to go every year on my family summer holidays. It’s where I learnt to snorkel.
Chris Cowley @chriscowley
Matthew Chatfield @virtualranger
@IWTourism my favourite spot is the round crater in the down on top of Redcliff. Lie down, look up, all you can see is sky.
OakShed Media @OakShedMedia
@IWTourism: Headon Warren @ Sunset is stunning!

@IWTourism priory bay – beautiful beach and no tat. Then a nice lunch at the sandwich bar opposite the seaview hotel. Used to stay in a very small cottage in Bembridge – loved it. Woke up to ducks at the door and horses in the fields. Yarmouth is a lovely town and the pier is fab. East Cowes during Cowes week… Hmmm – time to pop over again I think 🙂

@IWTourism Newtown nature reserve – but the bit you can only reach by water along the creek or firing range the other side used to go on special camping trips there, recording bats, adder tongue fern, rare orchids etc. Incredible place not often seen!
Tom Shannon @tommos16
@IWTourism I fully agree! For me the IoW is the most special place on earth.
@IWTourism The Fort in Seaview is a fantastic restaurant/bar!
@IWTourism My kids’ favourite is Dinosaur Isle along with a stony beach on the opposite half of Cowes to the car ferry. My boys like collecting unusual and to them interesting looking stones & ones that make them think of fossils. One of my twins wants to be a palaeoartist, Palaeontologist, or a marine biologist & has found a possible fossil there
