    Hamstead Point Beach Info

    Hamstead Point Beach lies in Newtown Bay on the North West coast of the Isle of Wight.

    The bay stretches about 4 kilometres toward Salt Mead Ledge in the east and its remote offering homes to the thousands of different bird species as well as the millions of fossils that the area is known for.

    It’s not a beach to laze on and there is no swimming either but it is a fascinating shore line for fossil hunters.

    The National Trust owns much of the land and landing at Fishhouse point is not allowed during the nesting season, April to June.
