Isle of Wight Beaches

Isle of Wight beaches are recognised as being some of the best in Europe.

With 57 miles of varied coastline the Island yields a fantastic array of beaches, which were awarded a combined total of 17 Blue Flag and Seaside Awards in 2014 – more than any other destination in England!

With miles of award winning sand and shingle beaches, rugged cliffs, hidden coves and clear waters, a trip to the beach is an essential part of any visit to the Island.

One of the advantages of being surrounded by water is that wherever you are the beach is never too far away.

As one of the UK’s best known seaside resorts the Isle of Wight effortlessly delivers the traditional beach holiday experience of deck chairs, sandcastles and seafront amusements.

The award-winning beaches of Shanklin, Sandown and Ventnor all have very popular esplanades with a great selection of cafes, shops and facilities to enhance your “day at the beach”.

Ryde and Appley offer the largest stretch of open sands, perfect for games and activities, with great views back across the Solent to the mainland.

Whilst a beach holiday is often associated with good weather, the Isle of Wight benefits from an all year round appeal.

During the autumn and winter months walks along our rural beaches are especially popular, as they provide some of the best landscapes and views of the Isle of Wight’s heritage coastline areas.

Neighbouring beaches Compton Bay and Brook both offer sandy shores with easy access to the coastal paths, and further round the West Wight coast is the picturesque Colwell Bay.

Please note some of our beaches have restrictions on dogs at certain times of the year - for more info view our dog friendly beaches.
