About this location
The Isle of Wight region
The Isle of Wight is situated approximately 3 miles off the English Southern Coastline. It is known for its breathtaking scenery with much of the Island being designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Island first became popular as a holiday destination during Victorian times and its unique charm still entices over 2.5 million visitors each year.
It is quite easy to appreciate why the Island attracts so many, with its scenic coastline, award winning golden beaches, charming little villages and temperate climate – in fact the Island can boast more hours of sunshine than most other destinations in Britain. For the more energetic, the Island offers over 500 miles of maintained footpaths which makes it ideal for walkers and cyclists alike. The Islands towns offer a comprehensive range of shops and amenities including many 'High Street' names together with popular cafes, bars and restaurants - some even being awarded the 'Michelin Star'. All in all the Island is a wonderful holiday destination, catering for all ages and with activities for all interests.
Sandown became a popular seaside resort back in Victorian times and shares its bay with Shanklin. Pleasant walks along the Esplanade can be enjoyed with views across the fine golden sands of the beaches stretching over the bay to the English Channel beyond.
Sandown also hosts one of the Islands few remaining piers offering amusements, cafe, bar, children’s play areas and designated areas for sea fishing – great for the keen sea angler! In addition, there can also be found the Isle of Wight Zoo (big cat sanctuary), tennis courts, putting greens, leisure complex, tea rooms and restaurants. At night, Sandown comes to life with a variety of pubs and clubs where you can dance the night away. A great destination for a holiday with so much to do and being a perfect base from which to explore the rest of the Island...

"Ideal for a young family in a quiet location"
Riviera Park (formerly Sandown Bay Holiday Centre) is a development of stone built chalets spread over a parkland setting contained within a former 19th century wartime-battery site.
The accomodation and location itself is ideal. The chalet was very well equipped, well beyond what we would normally have expected. Touches such as a bed guard for very young children, a travel cot, high chair are very much appreciated though for our own needs were not required as we had taken our own (as these sorts of things are not always provided as standard!). Patio furniture was available as there is a large grassed area to the front. Very welcome was the fridge with wine, beer and some milk! Just one very minor niggle was the digital TV which would keep breaking up - this was solved by switching it to analogue.
Chalet 184 is great value for money! If this one is not available, try and find one that is not located by the main access road through the site - further to the back of the site is best. The chalets all face greens which are very safe for children to play on.
The site itself (Riviera Park) could do with some sprucing up, for example the former clubhouse and shop is now boarded up and the grounds could do with being tended more however this was not off putting to us.
Riviera Park is a great location for exploring the island and is very handy for the beach and cliff path for a walk into Sandown or up onto the downs.
I stayed here when I was little and glad I made the return trip with my own family.
