YAVERLAND BEACH SANDOWN
Do you like long walks with the sand between your toes and the sound of the sea lapping on the beach? Then Yaverland beach Sandown is for you.
I love it down on the beach at Yaverland when the tide is out, it stretches for miles, from the car at the bottom of Culver to the white cliffs at the tip and it’s very wide with a few rock pools on the way along and more once you get to the white cliffs. When the sun is shining it’s no different than being abroad with out the hassle of airports.
This magnificent bay is characterised by its craggy cliffs and clean, crisp waters. The appealing sand and stone beach runs between the imposing Culver Cliff at one end and Sandown at the other. With its own sailing club and windsurfing, canoeing, kite surfing and jet skiing all on offer, thrill-seekers will be in their element at this pleasant beach. Quieter than the other beaches between Sandown and Shanklin, Yaverland offers safe swimming and exciting fossil hunting by the cliffs. Take the kids there and crack open a rock, if you’re lucky you might find a fossil inside.
The beach is an ideal place to bring the kids and because it is so flat you can keep an eye them at all times. I love walking there with my dog, as do many other dog owners and have never seen anyone let their dogs out of control, it’s great to watch them all enjoying themselves. The beach is kept very clean as well.
If you are looking for somewhere to stay The Montpelier Bed and Breakfast is only a 10 to 15 minute walk away or under 5 minutes by car and there is a pay and display car park with easy access to the beach.
