Ventnor Beach is a revelation. A small arch of sandy beach the most southerly town on the Isle of Wight is a must-visit destination. Notes of the Mediterranean have attracted holiday makers to Ventnor for nearly 200 years. Standing in relative shelter from the sheer cliffs and the downs, the town boasts a micro-climate that produces warmer days and allows many sub-tropical plants and trees to flourish there.
The beach retains a Victorian flavour and has a ton of character. Facing south into the openness of the English Channel this bright beach is a joy to spend time at. Ventnor’s beach is home to some replicas of the mobile beach huts / bathing machines that can be hired.
Facilities at Ventnor Beach as include deckchair, sun lounger and wind break hire, public toilets, a slipway, disabled access, cafes and restaurants, public transport links and more. Dogs are welcome on the beach all year round except for the period between May and September. Also visit Bonchurch Beach close by.
