Pocket Guide: Cowes Beach Cowes Beach Hotels

One of the United Kingdom's premier holiday destinations, the Isle of Wight sits just across the Solent, off the south coast of England. Blessed with the country's best weather and some stunning coastlines, it's the island's beaches that attract many of the tourists who flock to the Isle of Wight each year. Situated on the edge of one of the island's liveliest and prettiest towns, Cowes Beach is particularly popular. With so many excellent hotels nearby, the beach is high up on most visitors' itineraries.

Cowes Beach

The main beach at Cowes is situated just to the west of the main town. Visitors can follow the footpath around the coast from the busy esplanade to find this small but pretty pebble and shell beach. Looking out across the Solent, Cowes Beach is a great spot from which to watch boat races in the summer.

Though the beach itself is comprised mainly of pebbles, there's a soft and sandy bottom under the sea, which is particularly pleasant at low tide. Nearby there's a shop and café, as well as toilets and a car park. All the conveniences of Cowes centre are just a few minutes' walk away.

The Beach at East Cowes

Many first-time visitors to Cowes don't realise it, but there's a stunning beach in east Cowes, too. Take the short chain ferry journey across the River Medina to find a mirror image of the main beach at Cowes. The shingle and sandy beach is typically a good deal quieter, and offers spectacular swimming. However, the beach is almost entirely covered at high tide so visitors should plan their visit accordingly. There's a playground, paddling pool and toilers nearby.

Hotels in Cowes

Cowes is one of the island's most popular destinations, so there's plenty of excellent accommodation to choose from. With some of the best hotels on the Isle of Wight in town, you really can't go wrong.

The Best Western New Holmwood Hotel offers easy access to the beach. Just around the corner, closer to the centre of town, there are plenty of guesthouses, many of which offer views out over the River Medina.
