Ventnor is one of the UK’s most famous seaside resorts, enjoying its own unique micro-climate. Enjoy the Mediterranean feel and soak up the sunshine on our pavement side patio, with uninterrupted views of the English Channel. Alternatively sit inside and admire the local artwork adorning the exposed brick walls. Fresh coffee and fine wines are served with a warm welcome here at The Met Italia. Ventnor and its beach is popular all year round and benefits from a very secluded position. A natural sun trap, it was this that encouraged Victorian to flock here. The gently shelved beach is great for swimming or sunbathing and is half sand and half shingle. There are still working fishing boats bustling around its small harbour, making it a fantastic place to buy and enjoy locally caught seafood from the likes of Ventnor Haven Fishery.
