Osborne Beach, East Cowes, Isle of Wight


Why not consider a trip to Osborne beach and bay, a popular haven for large yachts and cruisers that anchor there to enjoy the calm waters and the views. The beach was once the private haven of Queen Victoria, Prince Albert and their 9 children. You can enjoy the magnificent views out to sea and also look inside her bathing machine to see where she got undressed. The waters of the bay are usually calm and the ideal place to paddle or swim from the sandy and shingle beach? Then relax with a mouth-watering ice cream or steamy fresh coffee from the café.

Today there is plenty for families to enjoy at the beach. Bring a picnic and spend the day paddling, swimming, and relaxing with stunning views of the passing yachts in the Solent. Pop into the ice-cream parlour and taste the famous Isle of Wight Minghella ice-cream made from local dairies, or taste a tempting sorbet from a range of flavours. A shuttle bus will whizz you to the beach in a few minutes (from the front of the house, from April to October, and on some winter weekends and holidays). Or you can take the scenic Valley Walk which takes around 20 minutes.
