Explore around St Catherine’s Lighthouse to Rocken End and experience the most wild and beautiful scenery the island has to offer. A short drive along the coast road will bring you to Ventnor, why not discover the breathtaking Botanic Gardens, which nestle in the microclimate of The Undercliff? Visitors can peruse the exotic plant collections, which would normally be found in glasshouses elsewhere in the UK, thriving happily here.
