A small family friendly rural sea-side beach on the western side of the Isle of Wight

Colwell Bay on the Isle of Wight

Colwell Bay is situated inbetween the famous Needle rock and lighthouse and the port of Yarmouth. With views across the solent to Hurst Castle and Fort Albert, Colwell Bay is popular with families, holidaymakers, and locals who visit the gently shelving beach year in, year out; for either the traditional game of beach cricket or the regular banter with the locals.

A perfect place to relax and unwind in the summer months. Colwell bay has a unique friendly appeal, just busy enough in the summer months yet not overcrowded like some of the bigger beaches on the eastern side of the Isle of Wight.

Colwell Bay is not only a winner of the Quality Coast Award but has also been successful in displaying its Water Quality award which has been the highest standard for the last five years.
