Ryde Beach holiday cottages

Ryde Beach

Ryde Beach, also known as Ryde East, is found close to the busy town centre and pier. Situated on the north east coast of the island with views across the Solent to Portsmouth and Calshot Spit, this sandy beach is a great place to play, sunbathe, picnic and enjoy the surroundings.

Ryde Pier on the Isle of Wight

A promenade stretches eastwards across the town from Ryde’s hovercraft terminal and pier which is the second longest in the British Isles. Take a leisurely stroll along the sandy expanses past Appley Tower  and then on to Puckpool Tea Gardens. Deckchairs, sun loungers, windbreaks and other items can be hired on the beach.  There is also a public swimming pool complex, Waterside, with indoor and outdoor pools, close to the pier. Be sure to stop by the small boating lake where visitors can rent swan-shaped pedaloes for family fun.

Facilities-wise, Ryde Beach is well-serviced for public toilets, disabled access, seasonal lifeguard cover, a first aid point, lost child rendezvous and numerous eateries. The beach also welcomes dog owners, although some restrictions exist – please read onsite guides.

Please read the beach safety notices at Ryde Beach concerning local sea conditions.
