Sandown on an autumn evening is surprisingly closed down, however a superb meal at the Reef soon put things right.

Lovely place and in my opinion best place to go on the Isle of Wight. Lovely beach within walking distance and if you love the Wildlife, the Zoo is just round the corner. Very convenient for walks and cycling

2/5 - Disappointing

Beautiful beach and friendly people but many shops and businesses closed and the town is very shabby and unkempt.

Sandown is great for walking. Bembridge, Down, the Culver trail, coastal path to Shanklin are all within easy reach. Always a pleasure to walk here.

I visited many towns on the island. I would recommend Ryde for shopping, bars and the beach. Sandown is nice and quiet in comparison.
