Shanklin Beach Isle of Wight

Shanklin Beach Isle of WightShanklin Beach is long and sandy and has a gently sloping shore making it ideal for sun bathing or swimming.

Shanklin Beach is over a mile long in total so there is plenty of space even in the height of the summer season. The beach is busiest at the northern end where there are shops and entertainments. If you are looking for a little peace a quiet you can walk down to the southern end of Shanklin beach where you can also better enjoy the impressive and rugged coastline.

Pubs, cafes and restaurants are located along Shanklin Esplanade giving a good choice of places to enjoy lunch, a snack or just a refreshing drink. There are shops where you can buy beach games and towels.

Shanklin Beach GamesIf you are visiting with children there is crazy golf and children's amusements located at the Northern end of Shanklin Beach.

There is a lot of car parking available down by the beach but even this becomes full in the height of the season so it is worth arriving early for these spaces. Alternative parking is available in the centre of Shanklin if you don't mind the walk.

The Old Village at Shanklin can be reached by taking the paths up the cliff. You can avoid a steepish climb by taking the Shanklin Cliff Lift which costs £1.

Shanklin Beach ViewNotices explain beach safety are found along the Esplanade at Shanklin Beach. It is important to read about the local conditions and how to stay safe. Facilities such as public toilets are available.

Getting There: Shanklin is on the East coast of the Isle of Wight between Sandown and Ventnor. Shanklin Esplanade is reached following signs from the centre of Shanklin. Alternatively, it is possible to park in Shanklin town and walk down to the coast.

Special Recommendations:

If a whole day at the beach is a little too much for you then you can take the coastal path towards Ventnor (south) where, after a short distance, you reach the Grand View Tea Rooms which has a beautiful view over Shanklin Bay.
