Attraction Information

  • Beaches icon Beaches

Suitable for all ages

Venue type: Outdoor

Shanklin Beach has long been a popular location for family holidays, with a safe sandy beach and clear waters. The bay is sheltered from the prevailing wind by Dunnose Point, which is a stunning backdrop. Looking out across The Bay, views extend around to the White Cliffs of Culver and Bembridge Downs.

By the beach there is pitch and putt, children's amusements and car parking, as well as toilets with disabled facilities, a first aid post and a lost child centre. A lift provides easy access to the cliff tops, where the views are even more spectacular.

There is a small road train which provides a regular service through the summer months to the town centre and Old Village.

The water is recent Blue Flag awarded and safe for swimming, with lifeguard cover from May to September.

Shanklin is located at the south east corner of the Island at the southern most tip of Sandown Bay. The railway connects to the high speed ferry terminal at the top of Ryde Pier, allowing easy access to the mainland and London. There are also regular communications to the Islands principal towns via the buses.
