Beach was very busy as I was a weekend, sunny and a half-term apart from that it was amazingly spacious and would recommend this beach to families

Gorgeous view of Culver cliffs, Sandown and miles of water. Little things to do like mini golf and the toilets aren’t TOO bad!

We walked down from the cliffs above the beach but there is parking on the seafront. Lovely beach with a lot of nice eating and drinking places with outside seating overlooking the sea. Nice sandy beach but with stones underfoot to go into the water.

Had a lovely afternoon here, it was quite busy, but the weather was fantastic so not surprised. Wandered via shanklin chine which was nice too. Plenty of coffee shops and the usual beachside attractions. Worst bit was walking back up the hill after an afternoon basking in the sunshine.
