Nice beach for a swim or just to relax on the sand. Nice place to visit and plenty of parking on the road down to the beach or the car park by the beach. Cafe and restaurant both overlooking the sea.

This place is relaxing and energising any time of the year. The coastal walk can lead you to two-three Resturant’s along the coastal walks. We perched up for a drink and something to eat at The Hut and Freshwater. There is limited parking and must...More

Absolutely gorgeous beach, lovely and sandy, great to make sand castles! And the area is well cleaned with toilets, a cafe with a shop for bits and bobs! Lovely! Definitely recommend going here. Lovely views as well.

Collwell Bay is situated at the western end of the Isle of Wight . facing the main land is a quite area with tea room and beach huts ,ideal for one who enjoys a easy stroll taking in the sea air.

We stayed locally and our walks with the dogs took us this way often. Some nice little cafes on the way to warm up, but generally not much except lovely unspoilt coastal walk, with some pretty beach huts. We really loved it.

Colwell Bay is a small but pretty bay with lovely views Westward looking towards Bournemouth, Poole Bay and Studland. Most facilities are closed over the winter but there is a stunning walk over to nearby Totland Bay - about 15 minutes.

One of my favourite beaches on the Isle of Wight. Ok, just a few minutes from my house, but it's a great place to visit. At this time of year sadly most of the cafes have shut up for the season, but a walk on...More

I absolutely love coming down here, for as long as I can remember it's always been my favourite, love that there are beach shops close by. It's a lovely clean beach and the water is nice and clean and shallow.
