Walking the Island: Walk the Wight's Sandown to Shide Flat Walk

Walk the popular 8-mile flat walk, from Sandown to Shide, in aid of Mountbatten, either on the day of Walk the Wight, or at any point throughout September, with Walk the Wight Your Way.

The Flat Walk is popular with families, dogs (on leads) and people who would find the inclines of the main walks challenging.

It's also completely pushchair and wheelchair friendly. You'll start at The Fairway in Sandown and head along the countryside cycle track towards Merstone, past farmland, through Blackwater and arrive, on the other side of the woodland, at Shide Trees in Newport.

There's opportunities to stop for a picnic along the way if you wish. As well as a couple of places to purchase a drink or an ice cream. Walk the Wight 2021 will take place on Sunday, September 12th.

Distance: 8 miles
Walk time: 2-4 hours
