Overview

Steephill cove is a beautiful Hidden gem. With its ever changing beach of sand, shingle and fantastic rock pools it is no wonder that families return here year after year. Over the years Steephill has become a hot spot to eat as well. With The Boathouse Seafood Restaurant serving wonderful freshly caught Crab and Lobster and The Crab Shed serving fresh crab pasties and to add to that compliment there is Cove Coffee Shop with home made cakes, ice cream and gorgeous goodies to buy along with Hopes Happy Hut for children and The Beach Shack serving fare (all only open during the daytime hours). Steephill can only be reached by foot which adds to its safety and pure Charm... A true gem of old fashioned English seaside. A must visit for anyone on the island!

Long walk down and obviously back up but absolutely worth it. Lovely café for coffee and the cove is just perfect could sit there for hours, the view, the sea beach area all perfect.

There is a bit of walk to get there, but it’s definitely worth it and only half an hour from the centre of Ventnor. I like going in the evenings, when it’s quieter.

A true hidden piece of paradise. What a trip to a secret little cove should be. Park on the road and meander down to the magic. Food choices are top notch from fresh coffee to crab tart to go back for again and again.

Beautiful well kept beach and surrounding area, a credit to the local authority. After parking in the town, a delightful, sometimes hilly walk along the road, past the church to gain views and access to the beach below.

great beach, may be quite a walk down for young families as you can't drive down to it, but well worth the walk for lovely views.
