Sandown sits on the Southern coast of the Isle of Wight, sheltered in a beautiful bay, and is famed for its long stretches of golden sandy beach and the traditional British seafront and pier.
Sandown also has a great selection of attractions, including a Zoo housed in an old fort and a purpose-built interactive Dinosaur Museum.
We're pleased to announce that Sandown beach won 'Beach of the Year' in the BBC Countryfile Magazine Awards 2019. They called it a "traditional bucket and spade beach on the east coast of the island with miles of golden sand, pier and eclectic seafront – and just a short walk to peace, fossil-rich cliffs and stunning coastal wildlife.".
