Boats off the coast of Seaview

Peaceful in the winter months and lively in the summer, Seaview is a stunning Edwardian resort on the Isle of Wight’s east coast.

Not only does it enjoy some wonderful panoramic views out to sea, but it also boasts several sandy beaches, which make it a favourite for those seeking a coastal retreat. For amazing views, head to Springvale, where you can look right across The Solent to Portsmouth on the other side, with its Spinnaker Tower. If it’s boating and watersports you’re after, Seaview Beach is the ideal launch platform, featuring its own yacht club, while Seagrove beach is possibly the area’s most popular, attracting families, swimmers and sunbathers. From Seagrove, you can follow the seawall over to Priory Bay beach, a quiet cove with gently sloping sands.

Nearby Ryde

Behind Springvale beach, and on the way to nearby Ryde, you’ll find you’ll find Puckpool Park, which has something to keep the whole family entertained. The park is in a unique setting in that it is built within a former Victorian fortification battery, and is packed with leisure facilities including pretty gardens, tennis courts, a mini-golf course and a children’s play area.

Seaview is also a great base for walking and cycling, as it has the Isle of Wight Coastal Path passing through it. In one direction, you can take the 2.5-mile walk to nearby Ryde, one of the largest towns on the Isle of Wight, and a great place for a day trip. In the other direction, you can pass a number of pretty beaches and head towards Bembridge, a coastal village home to the island’s only remaining windmill. It also sits on Cycle Route 8, meaning by bike you can easily travel to Ryde, Bembridge, St Helens, Upton and Brading.

With the nearby Rosemary Vineyard, there’s no need to travel to the continent to get your wine fix. This vineyard is one of the largest wine producers in England, with the vines covering more than 30 acres, and they also have orchards from which cider is produced. Tours of the vineyard are available, offering visitors an insight into the winemaking process, followed by a tasting session of the many wines, ciders, juices and liqueurs they produce.

In the centre of Seaview, you’ll find a selection of boutique shops perfect for picking up a souvenir. Browse the selections of locally made gifts, food and arts, or take home something nautical from the boating shop. The art galleries are also well worth a look. Seaview is also home to some of the island’s most impressive restaurants: The Old Fort is a popular and friendly pub, while the Seaview Bistro is recommended for its grilled steaks and fish.
