Hiking, wild beaches and breath taking cliffs. You can take a ferry from Southampton pier to Isle of Wight and organize a day trip.

Catch a ferry from Lymington for day trip to the Isle of Wight. Take your bike and follow the river from Yarmouth to Freshwater bay for a lovely day out.

The ferries run all day long back and fourth. Take the opportunity to visit Isle of Wight with your car or by foot
