Beautiful walk in sunny autumn weather. Particularly liked the part through lush landslips. Well signposted. Not particularly strenuous.

Pretty walk and great variety from coastal path with stunning views to woodland wander. Took a bit longer than we expected as some climbs up and down from the beach. Not for those wanting a gentle amble but we loved it.

There is a lovely coastal walk to Sandown above the beach, with wonderful views. This is suitable for push chairs.
