Steve and Tess go the extra mile to make your stay on the beach pleasant and if they can help they will. Very friendly couple. We would not go anywhere else than Steve's beach in sandown. Thanks Sandra Tan Eileen and Alex from Chester xx

Lovely beach great just to relax on a sun bed and enjoy the sounds, again perfect for a walk great for children the sand is soft and good for castles, and close to the pier so all the funland activities near too.
