Sandown

3.8
Zoos · Gift & Specialty Shops · Wildlife Areas
A holiday in Sandown offers opportunities for leisure, great nature experiences, and a variety of educational and kid-friendly activities. This seaside resort features one of the longest unbroken beaches in the British Isles. Miles of golden sand, fossil-rich cliffs, and diverse coastal wildlife have won this "traditional bucket-and-spade destination" a beach-of-the-year award. Strolling along its eclectic seafront lined with former Victorian and Edwardian hotels remains one of the favorite things to do in Sandown. A number of local water sports centers offer windsurfing and kayaking lessons. For a family day out, visit the interactive dinosaur museum or an old fort now turned into a zoo. Take a peek at our world travel planner: Sandown and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.
