For a quintessential beach holiday, Seaview is one of the best places on the Isle of Wight to stay. On the northeast coast of the Island, nestled in-between Ryde to the East and St Helens to the West, you’ll find three beautiful beaches to choose from. So pack up your picnic, bucket and spade and head off for a day of beach fun.
This beach runs for about a mile from Puckpool Park all the way to the village of Seaview. With gently sloping sand and shingle it’s a good place for families and is a quiet year round (apart from August of course). The seawall runs directly behind the beach and you can walk along the promenade from end to end. Free parking is available along part of the sea wall and there is also a pay and display car park in Puckpool Park. Facilities are available in the village and during high season there’s a good choice of places to eat including takeaway sandwiches from the local deli and outdoor dining overlooking the water at the Old Fort. There’s also pub dining near to Puckpool Park at the Boathouse and a café in the park.
Enjoy views over the Solent, watch the ships sail by and relax with a paddle in the clear shallow waters of one of the best beaches in Seaview.
As you approach Seaview village centre coming down the hill, turn right at the cross roads and the lane will take you to Seagrove Bay (between Springvale Beach and Priory Bay), pay and display parking is available nearby. The beach is gently sloping, sheltered and sandy with a few rocky areas and perfect for a day out. Keep an eye on the tide though as the sand all but disappears at high tide. The beach is backed by some impressive homes and there are no facilities however, the village centre is only a five minute walk away so you won’t be short of places to stock up on picnic items. This beach also boasts a slipway for launching boats. Oh and take your dog, as this is one of the Isle of Wight beaches where they are welcome to run free year round.
Backed by woodlands owned by the National Trust, this stretch of private beach is accessed at low tide from either St Helens or along the wooden walkway from Seagrove Bay. Fallen trees provide great climbing at the westerly side of the beach. With golden sands and clear water, this quiet beach is tranquil and peaceful.
