Sandown Beach is one of the Isle of Wight's finest and most recognised beaches, with miles of soft golden sands crowned by Sandown's pleasure pier and topped off with spectacular chalk cliffs. Popular with tourists and surfers, Sandown is a traditional 'bucket and spade' holiday beach with all that you expect from an English family beach.
Sandown’s esplanade has traditional seaside cafes, souvenir and beach shops, whilst the pier has amusements galore.
The beach is accessible at all states of the tide and for the less ambulant we can arrange the hire of a special beach wheelchair. During the summer months a lifeguard service is provided. But if it's fun and games you're after, we can also book a specialist company that provides age-appropriate activities on the beach, book a game of crazy golf, or arrange for a surfing or paddleboarding session.
