A scenic 4 mile round trip, the walk starts from Rylstone Gardens, Shanklin, passing through Shanklin Old Village to admire the old thatched buildings. The walk will then take you through the autumn wooded park to join the coastal cliff-top path curling around the bay to Sandown. Along the path are the panoramic cliff top views of the golden sandy beaches below and sky above reaching to the white chalk cliffs of Culver Downs.
The route passes through Lake Cliff Gardens and Ferncliff Gardens to Sandown, where you can enjoy a ‘Free Hot Drink’ at a local café.
The return walk will take you along the undercliff sea-wall path to Shanklin seafront to hear the sounds of the sea and breaking waves. The final part of the walk is up the short climb of Chine Avenue to view Shanklin Chine and back to Rylstone Gardens.
Please wear trainers or either walking shoes or boots, clothing suitable for the weather and bring some drink and snacks to have on the way. There will be free refreshments for all when we stop at the café in Sandown. This walk is open to children accompanied by parents, young people and adults, with no upper age limit. Dogs are also very welcome but must be kept on a lead at all times.
