Forming part of the glorious Sandown bay, Shanklin is a very popular family beach, with golden sands, safe bathing areas and good facilities. Lots of additional activities for children including an adventure play area, crazy golf and trampolines. Great for sailing, canoeing and swimming. The theatre at Shanklin is close to the seafront. There is also a public lift assisting less able visitors to reach the top of the cliff.
Self-catering cottage holidays in the UK and Ireland can still be a green option. You can have the comforts of home and the flexibility to do what you want; when you want - without the hassles of air travel!
