The Isle of Wight Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) on the Isle of Wight, England's largest offshore island.

The designated area of the AONB (189 square kilometres) covers about half of the island. The AONB is concentrated around the south-west and north-west coastal areas and includes an area of inland downland in the island's east. It also covers about half the coastline, including both the Hamstead and Tennyson Heritage Coast areas.[1] The area was designated in 1963.
