About Colwell Bay

Colwell Bay lies on the western side of the island and is situated between The Needles and Yarmouth Harbour. It’s a small, family-friendly beach in Freshwater and is popular with holidaymakers and locals alike. However, despite its popularity, Colwell Bay rarely gets crowded, unlike some of the bigger beaches on the island.

Even if you don’t do much swimming or sandcastle building, you’ll love the beautiful views of Hurst Castle and Fort Albert just across the Solent. The local seaside café and beach hut shops are ideal for when you want to buy yourself a snack or a new rubber ring.

If you want another beach to explore, Totland Bay is just a nine-minute drive away. It too is a sandy beach and its clear waters make it ideal for swimming.
