The Isle of Wight has superb sandy beaches, stunning countryside and
exhilarating coastal walks. Sandown became fashionable in the Victorian
period and today remains the island's principal resort offering a wealth
of entertainment. It has an excellent beach and is surrounded by a varied
landscape of gentle downs and majestic cliffs.
Other attractions include the pier, which is right in front of our hotel, Brown's
Pleasure Park, the award-winning Big Cat Sanctuary and the Museum of
Geology. Dinosaur Isle offers life-like dinosaur models and skeletons and is
popular with all ages. Nearby Brading has a Doll Museum and a Roman Villa
complete with mosaic floors.
Regular markets take place on Sunday and Monday in summer to supplement
Sandown's shops, cafes and restaurants.
BEACH & GARDENS
Sandown boasts a clean, safe and extensive beach with miles of golden
sands. Its esplanades and seawall walks stretch from Yaverland southwards
