Rediscover the Great British Seaside

Shanklin sits at the south eastern coast of the Isle of Wight off the south coast of the UK. One of the Island’s most popular seaside beach resorts, Shanklin is home to a brilliant golden sandy beach which stretches for miles right through to the neighbouring resort of Sandown.

Shanklin Seafront really has something for all of the family,Whether you’re visiting the Isle of Wight on a short day trip and you are looking for a few hours of entertainment or on a longer summer family holiday and looking for a whole day of activities, Shanklin Seafront has it all!’


The beach itself provides a safe playground for the kids and is ideal for paddling and swimming in the summer months. Just across the promenade sits our great range of amusements including the 2 crazy golf courses of Pirates Cove and Jurassic Bay Adventure Golf.

The outdoor fun park next to the crazy golf course offers a wide range of activities from bouncy castles, trampolines, water zorbs, mini go-carts and let’s not forget “Captain Jack’s Runaway Train”.


Shanklin is packed full of great places to eat and drink, whether you’re looking for some traditional pub grub or some Italian style, there’s an establishment for everyone in this bustling town.

When hunger strikes you have plenty to choose from here at Shanklin Seafront. Whether it is traditional Fish & Chips from the Bayside, hot and cold snacks, cream teas and cakes from The Clubhouse Cafe or sweet treats from Toppings Ice Cream Parlour, there is something for everyone.

Come and join the fun!
