Totland Bay is a bay on the west coast of the Isle of Wight, with a picturesque, blue flag sand and shingle beach. It lies near the village of Totland and within easy reach of some lovely Island holiday cottages. The pier on the beach is being restored and will host a beach café at its head. In the meantime, take a leisurely saunter along the seafront, past the pretty beach huts and stop for a drink or meal at the Waterfront overlooking the seawall. It is reputed to be one of the best places on the Island to relax while watching the sunset.
In the evening the eastern end of the beach is popular with local anglers and beyond that is a nice walk around to Colwell Bay. Totland Bay lies within easy reach of the small coastal resort and harbour at Yarmouth from which foot and vehicle ferries arrive and depart for Lymington on the UK mainland. Equally accessible is the characterful Victorian Village of Freshwater. Inland villages on the Island of Wight such as Godshill are just as picturesque with many pubs serving up delicious menus using local produce and accompanied by some fine local ales.
