Bembridge Beach

About

The main beach in Bembridge runs down the coast from the spit at the edge of Bembridge harbour. The beach is comprised of stones, pebbles and shells but has sand below the high water mark and a large sandbank that extends into the Solent at low tide.

Bembridge beach is ideal for exploring, with great views out over the Solent to Portsmouth and the south coast, and also of St Helen's Fort, built by Palmerston between 1867 and 1880.

It is very popular for watersports and dinghy sailing, with access via a road from the main highway.

A car park sits among the sand dunes behind the beach.

The harbour is especially busy in the summer months and you can watch the boats negotiate their way in and out of the harbour via the channel that is marked with jaunty large coloured buoys.

A groyne marks the edge of the safe swimming area.

There is a small cafe on the edge of the harbour nearby and a popular pub that also serves food with music most evenings during the summer months.

GETTING THERE:

The number 8 bus skirts the harbour – get out at the Tollgate Cafe.
