Ventnor Beach Information
Ventnor Beach is a well sheltered sand and shingle beach and the cliffs make it a perfect sun trap for beachgoers.
The walk to this beach is really pretty as you amble through the town and past the Cascade Gardens to the sea. It’s a great family beach for paddling, swimming, sunbathing and picnics.
Plenty of cafes, pubs and restaurants offer a wide variety of food and drink on the seafront and Bonchurch, a secluded beach, is within walking distance. Fresh crab and lobster can be purchased at Blake’s at the start of the esplanade if you fancy too.
If you want to explore further afield then head West and visit Steephill cove or hike along the cliff paths to St Lawrence with its rocky beach.
The locals will tell you that it’s not great for water sports as there are hidden rocks and a strong tides.
Facilities include parking, toilets, disabled access, cafes, restaurants, pubs, botanical gardens and shops.
Ventnor Beach is dog friendly and allows dogs all year.
