Bembridge is one of the most easterly towns on the Island, and offers wide shallow beaches, perfect for safe bathing and beachcombing. Bembridge has a surprisingly busy small harbour, which is always well stocked with pleasure craft and fishing boats. The harbour’s characterful houseboats are definitely worth a look and some of them offer afternoon tea and B&B. Bembridge Windmill is an iconic landmark, and the only surviving windmill on the Island. It was built c.1700 and still has its original machinery intact. From here there are glorious panoramas across the Island, views that provided inspiration for many artists including J.M.W. Turner.
The beaches around Bembridge offer sandy beaches, some which are great for exploring rock pools too, such as Whitecliff Bay and Bembridge Ledge and Forelands.
September is a great time to visit as the annual Bembridge Harbour Food Festival takes place giving visitors and locals alike a chance to feast on all that’s local from our land and sea
