Ventnor is a smaller beach than its neighbours Sandown and Shanklin but has its own delightful charm. To the Victorians this seaside town was fashionable as the fresh air found here was considered to improve your health. Nearly a century later many of its Victorian characteristics remain. This beach has all the traditional seaside amusements such as deckchair hire, childrens play area and hot snacks/ice-cream shops.
It has a first aid hut and having a water quality award it is popular for bathing. The beach is mainly sandy and aside from swimming is favoured for fishing and boating.
Ventnor beach has its fair share of bed and breakfasts as well as hotels. A popular pub/restaurant is situated at one end of the beach famed for its fresh seafood dishes. Visitors can take a scenic walk over the top of the cliffs and gaze down at the beautiful Island coastland. Although the amusements are not so obvious here this beach is ideal for families especially as there is plenty to do and striking scenery to admire.
