The wooded coastal ravine of Shanklin Chine sits as the Isle of Wight's mini-Shangri La. Start your visit at the heritage center, where you can learn about the site's natural history. Embark on one of the trails and amble past waterfalls, lush vegetation, and towering trees. The chine drops 32 m (102 ft) to the sea over the course of 0.4 km (0.25 mi). Keep your camera ready, because you might spot gray chipmunks, parrots, Asian blue quails, and Chinese golden pheasants. With entrances and exits at both ends, you can walk either up or down. A fisherman's cottage sits at the bottom, though, and a home-cooked meal with a locally brewed ale on the sundeck makes a fine way to top off your visit.

  • Step back in the time tunnel 100 years. Enjoy your wondering down to the sea. Good news is excellent pub's at both ends of the walk.
