Compton Bay Beach, Totland

Totland, Isle of Wight, England, UK


Compton Bay Beach is a large sandy beach about two miles long and open to dog walkers all year round!

This beach is famous for its geological history going back to the dinosaurs and the views and the cliffs make a perfect backdrop for bathers.

To get there you will have to find the car park near Shippards Chine just off the A3055 and you will see the sign welcoming you to Hanover Point and the Fossil Forest. Steps lead down from the car park on the beach and there are toilets right there too.

It can be really windy on this beach but the surf is good and therefore very popular with the surfers! There is very little else on this beach as it is known for its wildness! Great for walks, picnics, surfing, fossil hunting and dogs! At low tide dinosaur foot prints can be seen imprinted in the rocks.

The south west coast of the island is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), a Heritage Coast and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
