Beach facilities

Season: summer

Tucked away under the Ventnor Undercliff area, this beach is a hidden gem, accessible only by foot.  There are beach huts and the atmosphere is tranquil.  At low tide there are rock pools to explore and in the summer there is a cafe and seafood restaurant.  The setting is secluded, with trees and cliffs behind the beach, as well as fishermen’s cottages.  It’s a place to kick back and let your mind wander, perhaps back in time to slower rhythms of life.
