Tasty Walks

Tasty Walks is a series of 18 self-guided walks which make the most of the very best the island has to offer - its stunning scenery and fabulous food. Whether it's the rugged south coast cliff paths, the long sweeping bays of the west or uncovering the historic past of the island's capital, the island has much to offer in just 25 square miles.
These routes are designed with walkers of all ages and abilities in mind.
Get a feel for which would best suit you by simply clicking on the titles and finding out more. Use our interactive maps to help you find your way. Each is accompanied by an audio guide  which talks you through your walk and points out places of historical importance or interest.
The audio guide voiceovers are provided by Island FM's Andrew Senneck.  You can find Andrew on the radio every week day evening as well as providing you all the local and national sporting information on Sports Saturday every Saturday afternoon from 2pm.
