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.
The most easterly point on the island, this beach is stoney with patches of sand at low tide.The "Ledge" is a rocky platform which can be seen at low tide and it is known to be a good area for line fishing. Access the beach from Lane End Road. Dogs allowed year round.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Situated on Bembridge Harbour, pay a visit to this unusual inn which looks like a boat (you need to see it for yourself!). A friendly welcome awaits along with an open fire in winter and outside seating in summer. Children are welcome and there is a kids menu available. Dogs are also made welcome. There are two sunny terraces at the back and bench seating at the front.
It is actually built in the shape of a boat which is quite cool. There's a bit of seating outside but mostly inside, although it's quite small so there aren't that many tables. Menu is limited but that's not necessarily a bad thing as food is freshly cooked to order.
An old fashioned cafe situated on the harbour side with views across the water. Food is prepared to order and whilst you are waiting you can chat to locals or look around the many souvenirs on sale. Limited parking is available but there is parking on the road. Dogs are welcome and there is ample outside seating on summer days.
It's old fashioned but in a lovely location overlooking the harbour. It's best to go when it's sunny and you can sit outside.
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.
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.
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.
