About Bembridge

As the village runs along the coast many of the things to do in Bembridge are related to the sea. The three beaches Lane End, the Ledge and Bembridge Beach are very popular for exploring with contrasting coastlines, rock pools and stunning panoramic views out to sea.

With its substantial harbour Bembridge is a very popular destination for sailing. On the Lane End Beach you will find the new Bembridge Lifeboat station which stands offshore to form a striking image.

The natural timber building was only completed in 2010 but has become one of the most iconic and most photographed structures on the Isle of Wight in recent years.

Another of the Isle of Wight’s most recognisable pieces of architecture is Bembridge Windmill, on the outskirts of the village, which is maintained by The National Trust.

A short distance from Bembridge is Culver Down, the white cliffs of which can be seen from Sandown Bay all the way through to Shanklin. Read more about Bembridge…
