The Undercliff & Ventnor
Bonchurch is a village on the outskirts of Ventnor, with breathtaking views it is well worth a visit. The Landslip Viewpoint is a series of walks around a in-active landslide area. You can squeeze into the Devils Chimney, a steep series of steps in a narror gauge in the hillside. Follow the coastal path from the landslip and you find the 11th Centuary Church with a small stram heading towards the seafront.
Follow the seafront walk to Ventnor.
Ventnor is a town on south-east side of the island, and one of the steepest in the UK. The town is dominated by St Boniface Down. The seafront is has a harbour, pebble beach and the famous waterfall. At the base of the waterfall is a paddling pool in the shape of the island! The town centre is a mixture of high street shops and unique local shops.
Further up from the town is the Undercliff, a strengh of land that which was created in a landslip. This has resulted in the area being affected by landslides. Some areas are not suitable for vehicles but that is a brilliant excuse to explore a unique area on the island.
