Shalfleet is a small village located between Yarmouth and Newport in the northwest of the Island.

The name “Shalfleet” means “shallow stream”, referring to the Caul Bourne which flows through the village, and in turn gives its name to nearby Calbourne.

Shalfleet Quay is a short stroll or cycle from the main road and worth a visit to take in the local nature scenes and picturesque views across Newtown creek. This is a great place to launch a canoe, kayak or dinghy to go exploring the creeks and tributaries of Newtown Creek.

The quay at Shalfleet that you see today was built in the seventeenth century. The channel of the estuary was deeper long ago, so larger vessels could use it. Salt was made in salt pans on the marsh. Bricks were produced in the area and both products were transported by boat. Coal was landed here and stored in the old stone building. The track from the village to the quay was then an important route. Now it is a pretty walk overlooking Newtown National Nature Reserve owned by the National Trust. There is no public parking at the quay.
