Your guide to Sandown

If you’re booking a family holiday on the Isle of Wight, or if you’re more interested in an action-packed experience than a calming and peaceful stay, then people that have visited the island before might point you in the direction of the coastal town of Sandown. Upon arrival you’ll quickly see why Sandown is one of the most popular destinations for holidays and short breaks, chosen for its Blue Flag beach and for the many exciting attractions that are open throughout the year.

Surfers, in particular, flock to Sandown for their holidays. The waves provide excellent conditions for beginners and more experienced surfers, as well as being safe for a spot of swimming on a warm summer day. Alternatively, keep to dry land for an afternoon of sunbathing with a nice, cold drink and an occasional ice cream
