Beautiful Island Beaches – our comprehensive guide
The Isle of Wight has an incredible range of stunning beaches, from wide sandy shorelines to rolling cliffs and awe inspiring coastal views. We cram a lot in too! The Island is only 25 miles by 14 miles and you’re never more than nine miles from one of our renowned seascapes.
There really is something for everyone. The Isle of Wight has 57 miles of coastline and contains some of the best beaches in the UK. Sandown, Shanklin and Ryde offer miles of golden sand, with Freshwater Bay, Totland Bay, Colwell Bay and Steephill Cove offering great days out.
Life is better by the sea – whether that’s on a traditional seafront with vintage beach huts, or taking in watersports, a swim or finding fossilised dinosaur footprints.
Bringing your four-legged friend on holiday couldn’t be easier too – see our great Dog-Friendly Isle of Wight page to discover where and when you can take your dog for a dip on the beach.
A meal by the sea is a stunning treat for the senses – try our selection of places to eat with sea views.
