  • About Us

    Hamstead Point Beach Info

    Hamstead Point Beach lies in Newtown Bay on the northwest coast of the Isle of Wight and is very much a beautiful and undeveloped stretch of coast.

    This is the Hamstead Heritage Coast and the bay stretches about 4 kilometres and this remote location offers safe homes to the thousands of different bird species and for the walking visitor a raw natural beauty.

    Hamstead Point is not a beach to lay down your towel and sunbathe and there is no swimming either but it is a fascinating shoreline for birdwatchers,  beachcombers and fossil hunters.

    The National Trust manages much of the land and you have no facilities. The only access if via the coastal path from Bouldnor near Yarmouth or Thorness near Cowes, alternative access points are from some of the local villages like Newtown and Shalfleet.

    We have no current information on dog restrictions for Hamstead Point Beach.
