#27 - Search through secret pools at low tide at Freshwater Bay
Isle Of Wight
AboutThere is something soothing about the sound of Freshwater Bay, with its flint and chalk pebbles which are constantly pulled up and down the shore by the sea’s powerful waves.
Many visitors try out watersports from the Bay, such as kayaking or paddleboarding whilst others follow the pretty coastal path towards the cliffs of Compton Bay.
Explore Freshwater Bay a little further though and you will find a secluded second beach which emerges at low tide. Round to the right as you face the sea is this hidden gem with the receding waters exposing a rocky ledge with natural stepping stones to leap between and a world of sea creatures to explore.
If you would rather keep your feet dry you can sit on the soft sandy beach which is backed by dramatic high cliffs housing an abandoned cave.
