Ventnor Bay

Ventnor Bay

The coastline around Ventnor is stunning. But don’t just take it from us. It wins all kinds of awards for its beauty and cleanliness. And you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to beaches – from the totally secluded Orchard Bay to the main Ventnor beach, lined with cafés, bars and restaurants
The Beach

This beautiful Blue Flag beach is lovely for families, surfers and sunseekers. Cafés, bars and pubs are nearby so you can grab a Minghella’s ice-cream… or a cheeky beer at the Spyglass, the locals’ favourite. Well, when in Ventnor…

If you’ve got you’re walking legs on then you can enjoy a beautiful stroll along the coastal paths to reach the quieter beaches and coves that sit either side of Ventnor bay.

This beach is so secluded that it could easily just be you and a few seagulls sharing the sands. So how do you find this hidden jewel? Well, walk along the coastal path from Ventnor, or meander down through Bonchurch, past the 11th century church. But shhhh… it’s our secret. Don’t tell everyone.
Orchard Bay

This golden crescent is hidden away just beyond the Botanic Gardens and the perfect spot to enjoy a picnic (the Chef at the Botanic Gardens will even make up a spread for you). It looks like a private beach, but it’s not. It’s yours. And mine. We can share it.
Steephill Cove

If you come when the tide’s in, you’ll wonder what all the fuss is about. But stay and watch it go out and this will reveal the beautiful, flat golden sands with rock pools and a dramatic cliff line backdrop. Simply stunning. The food’s pretty special here too. Find out more here…
