Meet at Eastern Gardens Terrace, Culver Parade, Sandown PO36 8AH
(Opposite ISURF and the Sundial Cafe)

Alternative parking, away from the popular seafront, is available in Fort Street, Station Avenue, and St Johns Road and at the roadside along Culver Parade.

The Meeting Point is at the Eastern Gardens Terrace, which can be reached at the eastern end of the Esplanade (next to the public toilets) or by descending a flight of steps from the town-end of Culver Parade (there is a notable wartime relic of an anti-ship mine on display at the top).

For the Esplanade, enter this one-way street from the High Street, having turned off into Pier Street for a few metres. Culver Parade is approached from Yaverland, and is past the Isle of Wight Zoo and the Dinosaur Isle attraction.

Sandown is also served by the Island Line train line that runs from Ryde Pier Head to Shanklin and back the beach is a 15 minute walk from the station (downhill). Southern Vectis buses that run to Sandown are the 2, 3 and 8.

Sandown Beach is one of the Isle of Wight's finest and most recognised beaches, with miles of soft golden sands crowned by Sandown's pleasure pier. Popular with tourists and surfers, Sandown is a traditional 'bucket and spade' holiday beach with all that you expect from an English family beach.

The beach has several outlets to hire deckchairs, sun loungers and windbreaks. The main seafront area begins slightly west of the pier where there is parking and from here the Esplanade runs down to where the sand narrows. At this point there is a beach shop, cafe, public toilets and the one-way road turns inland, which marks the entrance to Eastern Gardens (on the right) and the Swim Safe Meeting Point.
