The best thing about the Isle of Wight? You're never far from the coast. So if a beach camping holiday in the Isle of Wight is on the cards, our Adgestone Campsite could be the perfect fit.

It's close to the popular resort of Sandown on the isle's southeast coast, which offers a long ribbon of gorgeous golden sands backed by a promenade with traditional seaside cafes, shops and restaurants. It's a popular resort for families with classic seaside fun in the form of sandcastles, paddling, amusements, crazy golf and even its own pleasure pier.

Another great spot is Whitecliff Bay, just a few miles east of Adgestone Campsite. It's a sweeping sand and shingle beach backed by the Isle of Wight's distinctive Culver Cliffs, with a long shallow shoreline that's just perfect for paddling. It's a generously sized beach yet much quieter than nearby Sandown, offering plenty of space for some much-deserved relaxation. Enjoy a spot of rockpooling or try your hand at body boarding, before refuelling at the nearby seafront cafe.
