The Freshwater Area
Freshwater village offers a good range of shops, a pub with good food and leisure centre with indoor pool. At Freshwater Bay there is an 18 hole golf course with views across the English Channel and the bay with it's chalk cliffs of Tennyson Down is a good start for many walks with spectacular scenery.
Colwell Bay, with its beach huts, little cafes and gift shops is a very traditional beachside resort with a safe sandy beach, ideal for families. Along the coast is Totland Bay with The Waterfront restaurant and bar.
From the yacht harbour and ferry port at Yarmouth you can book a fishing trip or boat trip out to The Needles - one of Britains most famous natural landscapes.
At the Needles Pleasure Park you can take the chair lift down to the beach and see the coloured sands at Alum Bay. There are childrens rides, sweet making and glass blowing with gift shop. From here you take an open top bus (or walk if you're feeling energetic) up to The Needles Batteries, a coastal defence constructed between 1861-95 against the threat of invasion from France. It is now owned by the National Trust and at the end of a 65m tunnel the closest view of The Needles from land can be seen.
Fort Victoria Country Park has several acres of woodland with walks and is home to an aquarium, planetarium, model railway and underwater archaelogy centre. The cafe here has wonderful views across the Solent to Hurst Castle.
