Isle of Wight Things to Do: 99 reviews and 149 photos
Shanklin was the base for our stay on the island and we loved it here. It is a charming little coastal town with a beautiful old village, Shanklin Chine, sandy beach and many hotels.
The beach is sheltered by tall cliffs and can be easily accessed by the cliff lift. The village is extremely pretty with its thatched cottages, quaint shops and old fashioned tea rooms. The Shanklin Chine, is a deep gorge carved out by a stream with a waterfall and rare plants. In the evening the Chine is illuminated.
High Street and Regent Street are excellent for shopping, especially gifts. Most gift shops are open until 9 pm.
I liked the cliff-top walk along the Bay with spectacular views, going from the cliff lift toward the old village via the Chine.
Directions: South east of the island
