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

Nearest pub

The Solent Inn (80 yards)

An historic pub with some parts dating back to medieval times. Originally built overlooking the Solent but due to land being drained and re-claimed this is now not the case. A quirky feature of the pub is the public bar which slopes alarmingly downhill. Dogs are welcome.

Nearest beach

Ryde Beach (East) (¼ mile)

On the north east coast of the Isle of Wight, at low tide Ryde beach is sandy and stretches out for miles, as far as Ryde Pier. The pier actually had to be built to enable boats to dock and to allow passengers to disembark. You'll find this is a popular beach for watersports, especially kitesufing at the eastern end. Dog restrictions apply and you'll need to read the local signage for further details.

Beautiful sandy beach

Take a stroll the length of the beach early before the tide goes out and the beach looks stunning you could be in Spain !
Three bouys cafe at the far end has tasty food or just a drink to re fuel the kiddies.

Nearest walk

Ryde to Bembridge Coastal Walk (¼ mile)

A walk of just under seven miles explores the coast from Ryde, through Seaview, Nettlestone, St Helen's and ending at Bembridge Lifeboat station. The only inland section is from Nettlestone Point to St Helen's Church. There are plenty of places to stop for a break, outstanding coastal views and it should take you just under three hours. Check out the website at Britishwalks.org for a free download. Don't forget to check out the bus times for your return journey.

Nearest town

Ryde (200 yards)

A large seaside town with a traditional Victorian pier for promenading (or playing amusements!) before taking a trip on the steam railway. The beach is the longest sandy beach on the island (Ryde East beach) and has views to the mainland. It's attached to Puckpool Park with entertainment facilities for families and remnants of War fortifications for history buffs. Bring your dog and walk for miles with east coast views around you.

Great choice

This shop was open at 2 set times during the day, and we were pleased to see it was open until 18.30 when we stayed in Sept. They have a great choice of local produce including dairy items, the milk and Greek yogurt we had was delicious. The fruit was fresh and good quality, plus on sale were various dry goods and newspapers. A great selection of items. We will use the shop again if we return to Seaview.

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.

Seaview Beach (1 ½ miles)

Nestled between Seagrove Bay and Priory Bay, you'll find a mixture of sand and pebbles with large beach at low tide. Parking is nearby along the esplanade with small shops and cafes in Seaview down the road. Dogs are not allowed from May to the end of September. There is no lifeguard cover.

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

The Old Village Inn (4 miles)

This pub is slap bang in the middle of Bembridge 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.

Friendly local

Great friendly pub. Went a couple of times and the food was great, the staff were welcoming and the quiz was great fun. Really enjoyed our nights here and wish this was my local.

Friendly, welcoming, something for everyone.

Fabulous find in the village centre. Wide and varied menu, catering for most dietary needs. Staff are incredible. We ate here twice in a row, but I have no doubt that if you were in the area for a week you wouldn't run out of options.

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.

Seaview to Ryde Walk (2 miles)

Park your car anywhere on the Esplanade at Seaview and walk past the Boathouse pub with the sea on your right. You will pass rows of beach huts, woodland and into Puckpool Park. The sea views are stunning across the Solent to the mainland and the park itself is a gem. The path hugs the coast all the way around to Ryde, past Appley beach with its gothic tower and into the town. You'll find lots of places to eat and drink en-route, the path is even and flat so suitable for pushchairs. Dogs are allowed on the footpaths but restricted on the beach so do check the signs. The return walk is approx 2 miles depending how far into Ryde you walk and the best return route is back the way you came.

Enjoyable walk

With the sea to look at and all the activity on it along the way it is a very enjoyable walk. When the tide is out you can shorten the walk by cutting across the beaches. If you walk along the paths you will pass a small nature reserve which can be visited by all, a couple of pubs, The Boathouse looked good, a cafe which we went in called The Dell and recreations. The area named Appley has a Coastal Foley and woods to walk through. The beach at Ryde is large and sandy, and Ryde has many places for refreshments after your walk. You can continue your walk along the pier, which is free for pedestrians. We estimated the distance to be a little over 2 miles, we took our time and enjoyed the views.

Lily's Cafe (2 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.

Laughably Expensive

The owners have squashed in as much furniture and bric-a-brac as possible which makes for an uncomfortably 'cosy' ambience.

Although the fayre is good, it's not exceptional, the wait is long and the organisation is questionable. The prices charged would give one the impression that everything is gold plated. More realistic prices would lead to greater footfall and higher profits but then they'd have to get rid of some of the 'stuff' crammed in there and they'd have to organise themselves more effectively.

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.
