Ventnor Beach - Within 3 miles of Hartlands.
Ventnor Bay is a predominantly sandy beach. Here the family have access to cafes, restaurants and pubs for refreshments. The backdrop of the town from the beach, makes Ventnor Bay feel decidedly Mediterranean. There is a boat haven at one end and rocks at either side of the bay for kids to go crabbing. A great family beach and one not to miss.

Yaverland is easily accessible by car or foot. There is ample parking and it is about a mile from Sandown itself. Yaverland, like the rest of Sandown Bay, has gently sloping beaches and safe bathing.

St Helens Beach - Within 7 miles of Hartlands.
St Helens Beach can be accessed by either foot or car. There is a particularly good café/restaurant and the children will love to explore the rock pools. Like Bembridge and Ryde beaches, St. Helens looks out across the Solent and the shipping Lanes and there is something to keep the whole family occupied.

Seagrove Beach - Within 8 miles of Hartlands.
This beach will remind you of holidays from days gone by. The beach is gently sloping and has clear waters. There is a café and toilet facilities and rocks for the children to explore.
