Nothig to write home about

Service was good and staff extremely friendly. Food was nothing more than you would get in a Hungry Horse, all edible but very underwhelming.

Nearby beach

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Park above the beach and take the steps down. There's two miles of open sandy beach, sandstone cliffs and the chalk cliffs of Freshwater further afield. There are no facilities apart from toilets so take all your food and drink with you. It's a popular spot for kitesurfers and windsurfers. Dogs are not allowed from 1st June to the end of September and there is no lifeguard cover.

Great beach shame about the dogs

Beautiful beach shame they allow dogs on it while summer months and children are there as I witnessed ignorant owners allowing their dogs to foul the beach and leave it there

A great spot for an Ice cream if you're out for a drive along the South Coast. One of the few places on the Island you can usually find some Surf

Nearby walk

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Have a little pootle around the Western Yar Estuary on this east access walk. It's just under 4 miles long so will take up to two hours, but the IOW Ramblers have put together a lovely illustrated map to download for free with lots of interesting snippets.

Yar Ramble

Interesting walk along the Yar, then through woodland and farmland which took about one and a half to two hours. It was perfect for the dog and walkers and took in some lovely scenery.

Nearby town

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

On the north-west coast of the Isle of Wight, this bustling small town has lots to offer incuding the longest wooden pier in England dating back to 1875. You will also find some lovely cafes, an eclectic range of boutique shops, cobbled streets and a fabulous Tudor Castle. The Wightlink ferry arrives and departs to and from Lymington here and it's a great place to watch yachts and ships sail by.

Great Atmosphere

Ate here twice during our weeks stay in Seaview. Even though we hadn’t booked the first time we went, which was a busy Saturday lunch time and we were a party of 6 including a 3 year old, we were given a warm welcome and seated with no problems. We had great service and the food was delicious on both occasions. We booked for our second visit as it seems to be a very popular place, understandably given the quality of the food and the service. Very family friendly too with a great buzzy atmosphere, would highly recommend a visit.

Excellent food and great staff

This is a great place to eat as it has some lovely dishes and has a specials board. We tried the sea bass which was so nice we returned for a second helping! Our party also tried the fish of the day which was a whole sea bream, again delicious. The shell on prawns, the fish and chips and the crab ramekin were also really nice and the bread served here was gorgeous and you get plenty of butter. The chocolate brownie dessert was a triumph too. All of this, plus it is dog friendly! Definitely recommended to try.

Lovely seaside pub with outside sitting area. Enjoyed the food, but you do need to book ahead as they get very busy and its OK to sit outside if it is a balmy summer evening.

Nice but....

We never got to actually eat in this pub. We did try several times but we were either too late or too early and they weren't serving food and then on our last evening there we were told no dogs after 6pm so we couldn't get a table. To be honest we did rather feel that sailing club members were given priority over holiday makers and that we were a bit of a nuisance that is tolerated rather than encouraged.

A pretty bay with a sand and pebble beach nestled in between chalk cliffs. Located just to the east of Needles headland, the beach is popular but usually has ample space and facilities. Parking is available and dogs are not allowed from May until the end of September. There's no lifeguard cover here.

Refreshing

We sat on the wall next to the short promenade, the air is so fresh, the sun was warm and the sea was noisy around this lovely bay crashing over nearby rocks and rushing up the beach. It was only 30 minutes but wonderful in October.

If you visit at high tide, there's a good spot along the sea wall to jump off and go for a swim. At low tide the 'cabbage patch' of rocks appear, a great spot for rock pooling and exploring, but shoes are advised!

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The original station was transformed into a restaurant in 2014 and is now open for lunch and dinner throughout the year. This is a popular spot for walkers and cyclists and dogs are made very welcome. Give them a call for opening times before you go as they don't open every day during off season months.

Fantastic meal and a nice location for a bit of birdwatching

We had some great burgers and a delicious roast duck leg with a savoury waffle (loved the sauce too!) What a great location! Shame it was too cold for us to explore the wetlands and foreshore, however still managed to spot a few interesting birds on the way back to the town centre. Dogs are welcome too, which is a bonus, and they can even sample some "doggy treats"

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Check the tide times before you visit as at high tide there is very little beach. At low tide the beach is pebbly with some sand. A promenade goes through to Colwell Bay which is a nice walk with lovely views across to the mainland. There is a disused pier and other facilities are available including toilets and a restaurant. Dogs are not allowed from May until the end of September. No lifeguard cover is available here.

Totland Bay

A great beach for all the family and very quiet before the school term ended. When the tide is out there is plenty of sand, but once the tide comes in the beach is reduced considerably. There is still enough for access. The Waterfront restaurant serves excellent food and has wonderful views.

Totland Bay

Children absolutely loved Totland Bay both at high and low tides and sunset. Rocky corner provided lots of excitement when watching for baby crash and Little fish.
Dog owners do walk dogs on the Beach thought, it is not too often but it does happen there are no signs about dogs not being allowed too. Some People arrive atTotland bay by boat with dogs too.
Overall beautiful beach with a lot of sand at low tide. Not very crowded and loved by children. Walk to The far left sidę to the peaceful atmosphere near National Trust park side.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

If you're looking for a moderate 4 mile walk taking in the Needles then this is a good one to try. Start and finish in Totland with moderate climbing, dogs are welcome and it should take you around two and a half hours. Take a look at the National Trust website link for a detailed route.
