The location of attractions is intended only as a guide. Distances are 'as the crow flies'.

Nearest pub

The Waterfront (¼ mile)

Possibly the best views over the Solent can be enjoyed here whilst enjoying a drink or meal from the Mediterranean Kitchen. Specialities include homemade stone baked pizza, pasta and locally caught fish, crab and lobster. Dogs are welcome in the bar and on the terrace.

Nearest beach

Totland Bay (¼ mile)

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.

Nearest walk

Turf Walk (¼ mile)

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.

Nearest town

Totland (¼ mile)

Come toTotland for a more dramatic coastline and adventurous watersports. Not far from the Needles on the most westerly point, there are golden sands if you prefer to sit and while away the hours with a nice view. It also backs onto Tennyson Downs if you fancy a wildlife wander.

Also nearby

Freshwater Bay beach (1 ¾ miles)

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.

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!

Off The Rails (3 miles)

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"

The Needles Old Battery and New Battery (1 ¾ miles)

Pay a visit here and enjoy panoramic views of the Needles along with the opportunity to explore the Old and New Batterys' perched high upon the cliffs. There's exhibitions, memorabilia, a tearoom and stunning cliff top walks from Needles Headland to Freshwater. Check opening times on the National Trust website and note the property does close in high winds.

Also the former rocket testing site where the Black Knight and Black Arrow Cold war rockets were tested. An interesting site for military history fans.

Compton Bay (3 ¾ miles)

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.
