"Search for dinosaurs." Isle of Wight by Tdiver

Isle of Wight Travel Guide: 316 reviews and 665 photos

Long time no visit.

First came here in 1970 i believe with my parents and don't remember much, except for all the hippies being escorted back onto the ferries by the local police.That was the last of the big hippy festivals on the island.
Stayed in Sandown on the coast and Arreton inland and both have their merits.
Since i have been diving i'm very interested in all the wrecks off the coast.
Any great map of the wrecks i find i'll put here immediately.
Famous for its dinosaur fossils you can find on the beach,MUSEUM
Find exactly where you are going with this INTERACTIVE MAP
Zooming in 4x will give you lots of detail but to find something follow the directions.
Check the WEATHER before you go.
