Totland Bay

Totland Bay is a striking west-facing beach on the Isle of Wight is popular with bathers and sun worshippers having been awarded the Seaside Award Flag since 2001. The beach is a great spot for jet-skiing and wind surfing too. Its 4km shoreline makes for a beautiful walk at sunset with its westerly aspect for the main stretch.  Totland also has a pier that has seen a programme of restoration; a café is due to open there too. The Isle of Wight Coastal Path runs along the sea wall from nearby Warden Point to Widdick Chine. Reach Totland Bay at low tide because at high tide the beach all but disappears below the waves.
