On arrival in West Cowes, Southern Vectis operate frequent buses from West Cowes to Newport (service 1). Change at the bus station in Newport for service 6 to Blackgang. Taxis are also available outside the East & West Cowes terminals. For car hire, we recommend Enterprise - they will pick you up from either terminal if you tell them your arrival time.
