The excellent nearby beach offers a classic British seaside vibe and can be accessed from a set of steps from the top of the cliff path which is close to the property. Alternatively you can gain access from either of the flanking esplanades at Shanklin or Sandown. As this beach is effectively tucked away and not quite as straightforward to reach as its resort neighbours, it is very often quieter during the busier seasons, making it a peaceful alternative for a day on the beach, and the perfect spot for surfing, kayaking or paddle boarding, as the sea is relatively shallow and clear. Take advantage of the instructional school which is located at the back of the beach that offers a whole range of water sports activities for all ages and abilities. There are beach huts which you can look to hire and also a number of benches to sit on along the sea wall path, and there is also a café and barbecue area which is always popular during the summer season. When the tide is further in and the golden sands briefly disappear, the walk along the sea wall between Sandown and Shanklin is highly recommended as it offers a wide, flat path which is ideal for both walkers and cyclists.
Away from the beach, the town of Shanklin hosts a multitude of shops, cafés, bars and restaurants to enjoy. The old village is world famous with its pretty thatched pubs, rock shop, cosy tea rooms, restaurants and craft shops. The esplanade is packed full of amusements and crazy golf, as well as several waterfront eateries.
Neighbouring Sandown is a truly traditional beach resort with pier, amusements and pitch and putt. The Isle of Wight Zoo, and the Dinosaur Isle attraction can be found at the northern end of the esplanade towards Yaverland and Culver Down. The town is brimming with attractions to entertain visitors, most of them right on the beach front itself, so again you never have to stray too far from the sand. Further afield, there are numerous attractions to discover for all ages on this beautiful sunny island. To the west you’ll find The Needles Landmark Attraction with its chairlift, amusement park, boat rides, lighthouse and coloured sands of Alum Bay. Venture north towards Cowes and you can pay a visit to Queen Victoria’s favourite holiday residence, Osborne House and Gardens, or perhaps go south past Ventnor down to Blackgang Chine, the oldest themed attraction in the UK. Whatever direction in which you decide to head, the Isle of Wight has plenty to offer. Beach 530 yards. Shop 175 yards, pub and restaurant 70 yards.
