Holidays in Niton

A tranquil southern village surrounded by attractions and natural beauty

The sleepy seaside village of Niton is situated in the far south of the Isle of Wight, surrounded by the glittering seas of the English Channel and charming rural landscapes waiting to be explored.

St Catherine's Point is the southernmost point on the island and just 1 mile from the heart of beautiful Niton. Take a walk to this iconic Isle of Wight destination to see the gleaming white structure of St Catherine’s Lighthouse which guards this section of the coast. Further inland, to the west of Niton, lies the windswept chalk landscape of St Catherine’s Down; a site that’s cared for by the National Trust and offers footpaths that trail across an ancient, sweeping valley and up to the top of a craggy, whale-back hill. Grab your walking boots and get out and about in the wonderful natural space brimming with wildlife.

Secret beaches and peaceful coves line this section of the Isle of Wight coast including the golden sands of quiet Reeth Bay, the stony, cliff-backed Binnel Bay, and the wide flat sandy shore of Chale Bay, all making for dramatic coastal views if you decide to go walking along the Isle of Wight Coast Path. If you’re a keen beach-goer, the sandy beach and tumbling tiers of the Victorian-era resort Ventnor sit within 5 miles of quiet Niton, where eclectic beach shops provide the opportunity for a traditional British day by the sea.

Back in Niton, you’ll be pleased to note there are two delightful places to eat out after long days of adventure. At the exquisite Fields Nursery Café, you can pick up a potted plant before settling down for a pot of tea, The Buddle Inn is a dog-friendly pub in Niton with roaring fires, flagstone floors and a beer garden, while The White Lion is a traditional olde-worlde pub where you can enjoy a light bite or a full Sunday roast.

Adventure, excitement and relaxation await in this unassuming Isle of Wight village set in the far south of the island.

Niton may well be a tranquil holiday destination but don’t be deceived by its quaint appearance, there’s a wealth of fantastic things to do for groups or families planning a big Isle of Wight holiday together. Blackgang Chine is a theme park and one of the island’s top attractions with rides, the magical Land of Imagination, and fun characters for kids to meet. Ventnor Botanic Garden is a beautiful place to wander with nature trails and a playground for children to make the most of. If you’re looking for adventure, Whale Chine is a ravine with sandstone cliffs either side hiding dinosaur fossils. It’s home to a small beach that can be a bit of a challenge to reach - the route down involves steep steps and a rope!

With attractions like the Isle Of Wight Donkey Sanctuary, Godshill Model Village and the bustling towns of Ventnor and Shanklin all within 10 miles of Niton, you’ll be amazed at the number of things to do there is in this corner of the Isle of Wight.
