Sandown and Shanklin

Superbly situated beside the sparkling waters of Sandown Bay, the twin resorts of Sandown and Shanklin have delighted generations of holiday-makers for over 150 years.

The Victorians laid out the broad seafront promenades and beautiful parks and gardens and built fine town and country villas, many of which have been converted into hotels and apartments.

A cliff-top path offers a wonderful walk, with panoramic views of the bay and continues all the way to Shanklin, passing Lake, which has its own railway station, hotels, guest houses, shops and water sports centre.
