Nearest beach

Appley Beach (300 yards)

This beach offers a 100ft long stretch of golden sand and another 700 yards of flat sand when the tide is out, ideal for families, water sports and creating the illusion you can walk to Porthsmouth! It is backed by the tall trees of Puckpool Park, a lovely area of parkland and this creates welcome shade during summer. The beach is pristine and cleaned daily. Dogs are allowed but restrictions apply.

A walk of just under seven miles explores the coast from Ryde, through Seaview, Nettlestone, St Helen's and ending at Bembridge Lifeboat station.

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

Seaview Village Community Shop (1 ½ 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 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.

Lily's Cafe (1 ½ miles)

An Artisan coffee shop in the heart of Seaview just a short stroll away from the seafront. Enjoy homemade cakes, biscuits, panninis, salads and quiche. Pop in for a well earned snack if you are walking around the coast or spending the day of the beach.

Lovely spot

Located on the High Street, this eclectic cafe serves good coffee and a great variety of snacks and cakes baked fresh daily. It's a bit of a tardis and looks small from the outside but there's loads of seating to the rear.

The Boathouse (¾ mile)

A contemporary pub situated across the road from the beach. Outdoor seating offers lovely views over the Solent during the summer months and indoors the decor is warm and welcoming. Dogs are allowed (on the hard floor areas of the pub) and children are made very welcome.

Nice, relaxed atmosphere

I visited here last winter; it was cosy and warm with a good food selection and friendly staff. It was dark outside and really weird to see the ship lights sailing down the Solent pass by.

The Old Village Inn (3 ½ miles)

This pub is bang smack in the middle of the 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.

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.
