Totland Bay Beach at Totland on the Island is lovely. Looking out to the mainland, this beach has several eateries and parking. It is popular with people looking for peace and tranquility, whilst the bay itself very often welcomes yachts and cruisers, who drop anchor and row ashore for their lunch.
At high tide the beach is pebbly, but when the tide goes out, golden sands are exposed and the water is clear and safe for bathing.
Totland Bay is a bay on the west coast of the Isle of Wight. It lies to the west of the village of Totland from which it takes its name. It faces north west and its shoreline is 4 km in length and is made up of a straight west facing coast which has a beach, concrete seawall, groynes and pier and a straight north facing rocky coastline. It stretches from Warden Point in the north to Hatherwood Point in the south-west.
The seabed is a mixture of mud and sand. The beach is predominantly shingle. Since 2001 the quality of the beach has been high enough for it to be awarded the Seaside Award Flag. In the summer, litter and seaweed are removed each day, with the latter being composted by local farmers. Currently, the pier is being refurbished to re-open the cafe which was there before.
Within Totland bay, there is a small pier which is being renovated and if you should wish to take a stroll, walk along the coastal path towards Colwell Bay around the headland, or perhaps along Turf Walk which runs along the cliff tops.
