Sandown is a great place to have fun beside the sea with its safely with gently sloping beaches. The beach is sandy and there are good toilet facilities available. The Esplanade is packed full of cafés, restaurants, bars, hotels and gift shops. The area is particularly popular with families as there is so much to keep the children occupied.
Stretching the length from Shanklin through to Yaverland, the beaches are some of the most popular on the Island. Sandown Pier is open all year round with amusements, a café, pub and fishing facilities. There is Dinosaur island, Isle of Wight Zoo, a skate park, Sandown Lawn Bowls Club, Crazy Golf and an excellent children’s play area.
During the summer, Sandown beach is machine cleaned and litter-picked on a daily basis. A large amount of seaweed is removed and offered to local farmers as compost.
