Freshwater Bay is one of the most picturesque beaches in West Wight and lies just to the South of the town of Freshwater. The beach is covered in a mixture of grey flint and chalk pebbles that make a unique sound as the waves rise and fall onto the shore. There is sand below the low water mark and some sandy areas to sit if you walk to the more eastern side of the bay. There is also a rock ledge revealed at low tide at this side, which is great for rock pooling with your kids.

Smugglers once used the caves around the bottom of the chalk cliffs that are exposed at low tide – if you wish to explore them it is best to find a local guide as you can become cut off by the tide. Kayaking is the ideal way to see them and the other small bays. This beach is popular for surfing and water sports and boats will moor offshore to come ashore. The Freshwater Independent Lifeboat is launched from this bay when required by those in trouble at sea.

Overlooking the bay is the Albion Hotel that houses a public bar or visit the Dimbola Museum and galleries for an afternoon tea.

Excellent base for enjoying Freshwater Bay and local cliff paths and easy to drive further afield. Location and Aspect, arrangement of rooms and choice of furniture, light and airy. Could sit out and eat on the balcony.

We had a glorious stay at Temperance. A perfect hideaway worth discovering. The location is excellent and a good starting point for cycling and walking. The apartment is spacious for two people and is well-equipped. With the windows open, you're close enough to hear the waves on the shore.
