Isle of Wight, UK

How to go there 1) Take a train to Portsmouth or Southampton, and take a passenger ferry to Isle of Wight *** I haven't tried this but you can take a Hovercraft from Portsmouth More info here: you can go around Isle of Wight by taking the Needle Breezer (Tour bus) for 10 pounds - Unlimited travel for 24 hours. Compton Beach According to my friend, he read somewhere that this is one of the hidden gems of the Isle of Wight.  The beach has a beautiful view of the Needles and the sunset.  This place is not easily accessible without a car and thus, not so much tourists, but just people who just actually drive there to see the sun set and enjoy the 'peace' and tranquility of the Isle of Wight. Shanklin Beach Prolly one of the more touristy places in Isle of Wight.  The Shanklin beach has a nice promenade (don't expect too much as it is small and just plain simple).
