Alum Bay Beach

Alum Bay lies at the western most point of the Isle of Wight and you can see the Needles quite clearly here. One of the things tourists love is the varied coloured sands of the cliffs and it is still possible to get the layered sands in tiny bottles in the gift shops in the nearly towns and villages.

This is a pebble beach and great for beach walks, shell and fossil hunting. Boat trips are run from a jetty on the beach and the facilities are good with a car park, toilets and a cafe.

The chalk downs around Alum Bay are fantastic walking country.
