Shanklin Beach

Shanklin Beach Isle of Wight

A long sandy beach backed with shops, amusements, restaurants and bars. Traditional bucket and spade stuff.

The beach at Shanklin has drawn visitors for decades and families still enjoy the sandy beaches and the range of activities. The beach is below the town of Shanklin and is reachable via the iconic Shanklin Lift which makes the sea accessible to all.

The beach is as much for promenading up and down as it is for bathing and swimming and many come to enjoy the sea air and a walk. Serious beach goers will find the beach to be sandy, well groomed and ideal for making sandcastles. For lunch or tea there is much to choose from along the seafront or above in the town.

Shanklin Beach has been awarded a Blue Flag for levels of water quality and the facilities. Find out more at

Shanklin Beach is one of several Isle of Wight beaches with Blue Flag status.
