Nearest pub

Crab & Lobster Inn (150 yards)

On the outskirts of Bembridge at the far eastern end of the island, this pub is adjacent to the coastal path and the local coastguard station. Food is not available year round so it's best to ring ahead and check if you are looking to eat. Dogs are welcome and there is outside seating for warmer weather. There's ample parking.

Nearest beach

Forelands Beach (150 yards)

Found on the Isle of Wight's east coast, dog-friendly Forelands Beach is a natural gem. Revealing a rocky platform known as "the ledge" at low tide, the rock and sand beach is home to lots of rocky outcrops and pools perfect for exploring. Access to the beach is via a track and there is a gravel car park available. There are eateries nearby where you can enjoy a range of refreshments.

Nearest walk

The Culver Trail (1 mile)

This circular three and a half mile walk will take you around the village of Bembridge and on to the downs of Culver cliffs with panoramic views across the bay. Start off from Bembridge Windmill and follow the route from the visit Bembridge website.

Lovely scenery

I did this walk in May time and it was lovely, great views from the top on Culver and there's even a cafe for a well deserved cuppa. Watch out for fields with cows in. Paths may be muddy during winter.

Nearest town

Bembridge (½ mile)

The most easterly point of the island, this friendly town is full of beaches that are dog-friendly year-round with pubs to stop in when you've had your fill of fresh sea air. There's lots of places to eat as well as shops for local ingredients to make the most of your self-catering stay.

Lots of great places to eat, in particular we enjoyed Lockslane. Lots of shops, no need to ever leave the town. All in a short distance. Great atmosphere here, very friendly

Lovely village

The centre of the village is where you'll find the majority of the shops including some decent cafes, a fish monger, great butcher (Woodfords) and a lovely bakery. It is like going back in time; in a good way.

Also nearby

The Old Village Inn (¾ mile)

This pub is slap bang in the middle of Bembridge village and is popular with locals and visitors alike. Parking is fine on the roads nearby. The menu is created using food locally sourced in the village so expect seasonal, fresh produce. Specials change daily and include fish fresh from the local harbour. A pizza oven is the latest addition so freshly made pizza is also on the menu.

Friendly local

Great friendly pub. Went a couple of times and the food was great, the staff were welcoming and the quiz was great fun. Really enjoyed our nights here and wish this was my local.

Friendly, welcoming, something for everyone.

Fabulous find in the village centre. Wide and varied menu, catering for most dietary needs. Staff are incredible. We ate here twice in a row, but I have no doubt that if you were in the area for a week you wouldn't run out of options.

Traditional village pub

I like it here. It's casual, frequented by locals (usually a good sign) and the food is pretty good for a village pub. The meat is from the local butchers and highly recommended.

Seaview Village Community Shop (3 miles)

A recently opened community shop offering local produce, newspapers, fresh fruit, veg and milk. It's ideally situated in the middle of Seaview and a great place to stock up. They are only open mornings until Easter and then will extend to all day until October.

Great choice

This shop was open at 2 set times during the day, and we were pleased to see it was open until 18.30 when we stayed in Sept. They have a great choice of local produce including dairy items, the milk and Greek yogurt we had was delicious. The fruit was fresh and good quality, plus on sale were various dry goods and newspapers. A great selection of items. We will use the shop again if we return to Seaview.

Great Little Local Shop

A new community shop recently opened in the heart of the village. It offers fresh fruit and vegetables, milk, bread and other local produce. This is the perfect place to get provisions in Seaview and saves a trip to the supermarket in the car.

Seaview to Ryde Walk (3 miles)

Park your car anywhere on the Esplanade at Seaview and walk past the Boathouse pub with the sea on your right. You will pass rows of beach huts, woodland and into Puckpool Park. The sea views are stunning across the Solent to the mainland and the park itself is a gem. The path hugs the coast all the way around to Ryde, past Appley beach with its gothic tower and into the town. You'll find lots of places to eat and drink en-route, the path is even and flat so suitable for pushchairs. Dogs are allowed on the footpaths but restricted on the beach so do check the signs. The return walk is approx 2 miles depending how far into Ryde you walk and the best return route is back the way you came.

Nice Walk

It is a nice walk along the coast from Seaview to Ryde. There are a couple of park cafes on the way and some nice coffee shops in Ryde.

Excellent pushchair friendly walk

A lovely walk from the doorstep, although you may need to walk via Bluett Road in Seaview at high tide! There are a couple of cafes in Puckpool to take a rest and refreshments.

Enjoyable walk

With the sea to look at and all the activity on it along the way it is a very enjoyable walk. When the tide is out you can shorten the walk by cutting across the beaches. If you walk along the paths you will pass a small nature reserve which can be visited by all, a couple of pubs, The Boathouse looked good, a cafe which we went in called The Dell and recreations. The area named Appley has a Coastal Foley and woods to walk through. The beach at Ryde is large and sandy, and Ryde has many places for refreshments after your walk. You can continue your walk along the pier, which is free for pedestrians. We estimated the distance to be a little over 2 miles, we took our time and enjoyed the views.

Seaview Beach (3 ½ miles)

Nestled between Seagrove Bay and Priory Bay, you'll find a mixture of sand and pebbles with large beach at low tide. Parking is nearby along the esplanade with small shops and cafes in Seaview down the road. Dogs are not allowed from May to the end of September. There is no lifeguard cover.

Old fashioned in the best possible way

This beach is always popular with lots of rocks for crabbing off, an easy part to get into the sea and a sandy bit for games

Seagrove Beach (2 ½ miles)

A real gem in the Isle of Wight's crown, Seagrove Beach has a gently sloping sandy shore with rocky outcrops. An untamed stretch of coast, this safe-swimming beach is often quiet and provides a real haven of tranquility. Enjoying beautiful vistas, Seagrove Beach is a sight for sore eyes and there are toilets and a cafe for your convenience. The easiest access is via Seaview village, with a short walk from there. Dogs are welcome year-round.

Hidden gem

We booked a weeks holiday in a cottage in Seagrove and didn’t realise how amazing the beach was going to be. The water is clean and clear and as we had super hot weather most of the week we were able to swim and play in the water with our small grandchildren. There are lovely walks in both directions and the beach is safe and not too crowded. The children loved seeing the local horse riding school take their route along the beach.
