A Victorian seaside town with a Mediterranean feel, Ventnor is one of the sunniest spots on the island. Built on a series of terraces beneath St Bonchurch Down the town's roads zigzag down to the sea past the beautifully planted cascade.

Over the past years Ventnor has become a very popular resort with the introduction of new wine bars, fine dining and fabulous properties.

The esplanade has a sand and shingle beach ideal for swimming, sunbathing or walking. Adjacent to the beach you will find pubs & cafes who offer locally caught sea food. Watch the boats leave from the harbour and return with the day's catch from the beach front cafes and The Spyglass Inn.
