3 things to do in Yarmouth
Walk with wildlife around the harbour
Yarmouth harbour, Isle of Wight
Enjoy the beautiful scenery with a stroll around the Western Yar estuary. There’s a lovely circular walk which takes you down the footpath from Yarmouth harbour, past the old mill, then along the side of the estuary, past historic All Saints church, then through the fields back to Yarmouth. The area is a great place for wildlife. Its tidal waters, saltmarsh and mudflats are home to a wide range of plants and animals that are specially adapted to living there. See waterfowl and wading birds, redshank, little egrets and curlews, you may also be lucky enough to see migrating birds passing through.
