Scenic bus routes on the Island

If you're visiting East Cowes Marina and you want to see a bit more of the Island, why not take a bus? During the summer months, Southern Vectis run a number of scenic routes, many with open-topped buses.

You can get to the starting point for all of these routes by catching a bus in East Cowes. The main bus stop is outside Waitrose.
