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.

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.

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!

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"
