Isle of Wight beach recommended

A beach on the Isle of Wight has been singled out for praise by a national newspaper.

Compton Bay on the island was named as one of the top 20 beaches in the UK by the Daily Telegraph.

It stated that the area, which is located in the west of the island, offers a "rural and unspoilt" experience to those who visit it.

"Walk south to Brook Bay at low tide and you may find ancient dinosaur tracks revealed on the foreshore, or spot fossils in the crumbling cliffs," advised the news provider.

But it warned that access to the beach is provided by a set of steep steps, which could be something those on Isle of Wight holidays have to remember before planning a trip.

In total, the island has 13 award-winning beaches, including the sandy stretches located at Cowes, Ryde, Colwell, Shanklin, Ventnor and Yaverland, as well as East Cowes, St Helens and Sandown.
