Isle of Wight's Needles 'are incredible'

Isle of Wight holidays could be set for a boost in popularity after the island's famous Needles were described as an "incredible" sight.

According to a report by the Leader, there are a wide range of reasons why travelling to the island is recommended this summer, with the Isle of Wight Festival named among them.

The event got underway yesterday and will see headline acts Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Pearl Jam and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers take to the stage in the coming days.

But the Needles were the part of the island singled out by the news provider for the most praise, as they "can claim to be one of the most photographed coastal sites in the UK", and are "just off the coast of the Isle of Wight".

It was also noted the Isle of Wight has some of the best beaches in the UK, so a break on the island could be ideal for those who want to soak up the sun on the sand this summer.
