On the South East Coast of the Isle of Wight, lies Sandown, a typical Victorian seaside resort, yet surrounded by a stunning array of natural features. From the traditional seaside attractions of amusement arcades, beautiful blue flag beaches, a stunning esplanade and pier to nature reserves, woodlands and even a petrified forest – Sandown has them all.
Sandown, The Isle of Wight
Enjoy the delights of Culver Down, a chalk down supporting typical chalk downland wildlife and seabirds nesting on the cliffs. Visit Sandown Levels, a freshwater wetland or Borthwood offering delightful woodland walks dotted with bluebells. At the northern point of Sandown Bay you will find a special area of conservations and at extreme low tide a petrified forest is partially revealed – simply wonderful.
The Edwardian and Victorian influence is still evident today in the beautiful architecture in Sandown – a favourite holiday destination for Lewis Carroll.
If it’s family fun on the agenda then a visit to Sandown Pier is a must offering a host of activities with a large amusement centre with arcade games and childrens play areas typical of a top class seaside resort. Why not visit Dinosaur Isle geological museum, or Sandham Gardens home to crazy golf and much more! A visit to Sandown Zoo is also a must for Big Cat Lovers as it specialises in tigers.
If its rest and relaxation - then look no further. Take a stroll along the Esplanade, enjoy a leisurely journey on the onland train that travels between Sandown & Shanklin, unwind in one of the tea rooms or enjoy a glass of Cider in one of the traditional pubs.
And on a coach holiday with National Holidays, Sandown can just be the beginning of your adventure on the idyllic Isle of Wight, as we take you on coach excursions to explore the best of this stunning Island.
