St Helen's Beach

St Helen’s Beach is a peaceful sand and pebble beach on the east coast of the Isle of Wight, just north of Bembridge.  This is one of the quieter beaches on this side of the island and is favoured by those looking for a place for a gentle swim, some walking and a spot of birdwatching. St Helen’s is home to a sand dune system that runs along a section of the beach. The beach is within walking distance of the village for local amenities that include shops, restaurants and pubs.
