Shanklin Beach, Shanklin, Isle of Wight

Shanklin Beach lies within Sandown Bay. It is sandy and safe making it a sure thing for families.

The beach is clean and welcoming with clear water, first aid, lifebelts,inshore rescue, water sports of all kinds and flies the Seaside Award flag! The bay is sheltered from the wind and has the cliffs of Luccombe and St Boniface downs behind it.

You will want to visit the deep gorge just past The Crab Inn. It is called Shanklin Chine and carved out by a stream. In the evening the waterfalls and woodland are illuminated giving the gardens around it a totally different aspect and atmosphere. Really worth a visit.

The views embrace the English Channel across the bay and extend around the White Cliffs of Culver
