St Helens Beach (Isle of Wight)

  • Information

    St Helens Beach is great for swimmers with safe, sandy beaches.

    St Helens lies between Bembridge and Seaview and is a lovely, traditional English beach with rocks to sit against and rock pools for the kids to go crabbing in.

    There are good walks from this beach to Priory Bay and Seaview as well as a good marina and boat mooring. To the back of the beach are the sand dunes which are great for picnics and games with the kids.

    Bird and wildlife are prolific in the area and the local farmers use the seaweed that washes up as compost ensuring a well maintained and natural beach spot.

    The cafe sells ice creams and beach paraphernalia like lilos, hats, buckets and spades. St Helens is a lovely little spot and the village green hosts cricket matches and football with views right over the harbour and it is a short walk to St Helens fort if you get a bit bored on the beach.

    Facilities include parking, toilets (incl disabled), cafe, slipway and campsite.
