Great Beaches of The Isle of Wight

A wonderful selection of beaches

As the Isle of Wight is a very popular place among holidaymakers it goes without saying that it has a great variety of interesting and amusing attractions. Moreover all these island`s amenities are available all year round. Nevertheless the most popular period when people are just flocking to the IOW is summer time. Thus, this very phenomenon makes Isle`s paradisiacal beaches one of the main attractions on the island. A holidaymaker can hardly imagine his or her summer pastime without basking in the sun or bathing and splashing about in warm waters of the sea. Fortunately planning to go to the IOW on your holidays you are taking all chances to be provided with everything you need in order to have a fantastically wonderful time.

A wonderful selection of beaches

If you are not very fussy you can choose any beach on the island and will be happy playing in the sand and listening to the sea lapping against the rocks since all of them are clean, pleasant and prepossessing. However if you want something out-of-this-world it is better to go to the most popular beaches on the Isle of Wight. These are the Sandown, Shanklin beaches and the one offered by the area of Ventnor. Let us take a close look at each of them and find a few features that make them unique and different from each other.

The Sandown beach

Though all three beaches are of high standards the Sandown beach is considered to be the most popular among families for the simple reason - it has plenty things to see to do and to experience. It is even impossible to highlight all the attractions that are on offer for the delectation of visitors. This large and gorgeously attractive sand spaciousness will charm you enticing from your comfy Iow hotels. It is for its perfectness and high standards the Sandown beach received a Blue Flag Beach Award in 2009. The pier is sure to have everything one`s heart could only desire: bars, fast food outlets, restaurants, cafes, various entertainments including the crazy golf and mini fairground.

The Shanklin beach

Those people who don`t like crowded places and prefer a bit more secluded beaches will appreciate the Shanklin one. It is less popular however this beach had the most recent award in 2009 and it is that of the Marine Conservation Society Good Beach Guide. The area has all the needed facilities and amenities of a holiday life: cafes, restaurants, pubs, a small crazy golf and a little pitch and putt. The place also can offer a range of amusements and attractions which will keep the children busy having a wonderful time.

The beach of Ventnor

The third rewarded beach is that of the area of Ventnor. In 2009 it was also recommended by the Marine Conservation Society Good Beach Guide. This beach will suit everybody except those who are fond of some water sport activities. Because of the hidden rocks in the local area this place is not very appropriate for a few water sports. One can try there fresh Ventnor crab and lobster and spend a splendid time away from noisy amusements and attractions that two previous beaches of the Isle of Wight offer.
