This small seaside town boasts a thriving heart with a selection of local shops and a friendly community spirit. Bembridge has it's own beach and is also sandwiched between the two other excellent beaches of Whitecliff and St Helens so there is no shortage of seaside fun. Within a short drive to the north is Seaview or, alternatively, to the south one will find Sandown, Shanklin and, a little further on, Ventnor.

  • Bembridge Beach

    Bembridge Beach Isle of Wight

    The beach at Bembridge is a sand and shingle beach on the East of the Isle of Wight between Sandown and Seaview. The beach extends around the village of Bembridge and is wonderfully varied depending which stretch you choose to enjoy.

    Most popular is the area near Bembridge Lifeboat Station where there is a car park. Here the beach is a mix of sand and shingle and there are views across to St Helens and the main land beyond.

    A promenade behind the beach can be followed around to the southern end of the beach towards White Cliff Bay and here you will find wonderfully peaceful sections of the coast which you can enjoy all to your self.


    There are numerous cafes and restaurants in Bembridge Village as well as some nearer the beach selling ice cream and lunches. Facilities are available near the Bembridge Lifeboat Station.
