Season: summer

Often referred to as the best beach on the Isle of Wight, Yaverland beach faces south and offers acres of sandy space at low tide.  It runs up from the Yaverland Sailing and Yacht Club to the chalk cliffs of Culver Down.  Water sports are the order of the day, including windsurfing, sailing and jet skiing.  More cerebral activities include fossil-hunting under Culver Cliff and views from the adjacent coast path, accessed via undergrowth behind the beach.  There is a promenade behind the beach.  Bathing is safe here, in an area segregated from the water sports and the water is clean for swimming.
