Compton Bay

One of the Isle of Wight’s best kept secrets. Compton offers a two mile stretch of contrasting golden and dark sands, with rolling seas and tumbling multi-coloured sandstone cliffs, and the white chalk cliffs at Freshwater in the distance.


Ventnor has a beautiful, gently sloping beach of sand and fine shingle set in a sheltered bay. The southernmost beach on the Isle of Wight the beach is popular all year round but is more tranquil than the larger resorts even at the height of the summer season.

Nestled in the bay beneath the tumbling tiers of the Victorian town,this red shingle and golden sand beach has vintage beach huts which can be hired on a daily basis from the hut on the sea wall, as can deckchairs, sun loungers and wind breaks, which are hammered into the sand for you with an old wooden mallet.

Along the seafront there are a small number of shops, amusements, cafes and restaurants as well as a family public house serving food. Ventnor may not be a huge place, but it has a wide range of attractions that will appeal to all members of your family, young and old.


Freshwater is located on the West coast of the Island, the main town offers a good range of shops and is busy all year round. In the town you will find a number of good restaurants, bars and cafes to enjoy.

Freshwater Bay

Freshwater Bay is one of the most picturesque beaches in West Wight and lies just to the South of the town of Freshwater. The beach is covered in a mixture of grey flint and chalk pebbles that make a unique sound as the waves rise and fall onto the shore.

Osborne House

This stately home was once the royal residence of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, used as a summer retreat. The house is now fully open to the public and has lots to see.

Tennyson Down

If you're a fan of the outdoors, make sure you pay a visit to Tennyson Down. Situated just south of Totland on the western side of the island. It is ideal for people who like walking and if you're brave enough to go close to the cliff edge, you can see a whole range of birds from peregrine falcons to ravens.
