Surrounded on three sides by the sea with access to the varied shoreline in a number of places via steps. Pebble and sandy beaches are popular with walkers and beachcombers.
Bembridge beach is a pebble and stone beach toward the sea wall, but is also sandy underfoot making it good for paddling or bathing. The beach is probably best known for being the site of the striking new Bembridge Lifeboat station, which runs from a long pier.
It's safe for swimming and novice windsurfers. At low tide the rock pools are great for collecting shells and searching for crabs, small fish, sea anemones and starfish.
