Totland Bay is a quiet, clean sand and shingle beach, renowned for its fantastic sunset views. The somewhat busier Colwell Bay is a short walk along the Victorian promenade. 


The Bay is located on the West of the Isle of Wight, close to the village of Totland. Ideal for swimming, with clear turquoise waters and far reaching views to the mainland.

The beach has a number of groynes along its sandy shores, backing onto a seawall where the sand turns to pebbles. The coastline here is rocky yet for the most part covered in a thick blanket of trees and greenery.

The Beach has a short pier, opposite which are the public toilets and a row of pretty beach huts. A narrow road runs down to the seafront, which has some parking, but it is best to park at the top and walk down in the summer months as it as popular with the locals as it is visitors.
