Coastal treats

It's all here for you

Cliffs, coves, sandy beaches, rock pools and secret inlets, you'll find it all on the island. 

Wave hunters should head straight to Compton Bay where onlookers can go hunting for dinosaur footprints and digging for fossils.  Seclusion seekers should put Steephill cove on the visit list for a dose of seaside charm.     

Whether your idea of a day at the beach is relaxing in a secluded cove, building sandcastles and jumping waves or fishing quietly from the shoreline, there is a bay, just right for you.
