Bembridge Lane End beach is a pebble and stone beach toward the sea wall, but is also sandy underfoot making it good for paddling or bathing. The Lane End beach is probably best known for being the site of the striking Bembridge Lifeboat station, which runs from a long pier.
If you walk along the coast in the direction of Bembridge Harbour there are a number of large rocks and also the remains of old wooden groynes eroded by the sea, that make an interesting photographic opportunity. As the tide recedes rock pools are revealed for shrimping and rock pooling.
Families bring nets and buckets for kids and they can forage in the rock pools at low tide.
The number 8 bus can take you to Bembridge and you then walk down Lane End Road to the beach. There's a decent sized car park next to the Lifeboat Station and a few no restricted parking places on the road.
