A ‘must’ is a walk through Shanklin Chine, a naturally wooded gorge, to the old village. Close by you will find The Fisherman’s Cottage for good food and drink or the Chine Inn, a small, cosy inn nestled in the Chine.
The long safe sandy beach of Shanklin has a stunning backdrop of Luccombe Cliffs and St Boniface Downs beyond. By the beach, there are children’s amusements, pitch & putt and selection of pubs & cafes. Coastal paths make for scenic walking to neighbouring Sandown or to the pretty village of Bonchurch through the winding paths & onto Ventnor.
This popular resort town, as well as sporting a variety of shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants, benefits from a railway station, enabling you to leave your car behind and travel to Sandown and the holiday resort of Ryde with its white sandy beaches and attractions.
With nearby Vernon Cottage Tearooms/Gift shop (within walking distance) and its Visitor Information point, you will find a range of brochures, leaflets, maps and information on the Isle of Wight to help you during your visit.
