It has panoramic views of the Solent and is ideal for those looking for a relaxing day out. The beach is unspoilt and relatively quiet although it does offer a variety of water sports including wind surfing, jet skiing and Pedaloe hire. A gentle walk along the promenade links Colwell with the equally relaxing Totland Bay.
Colwell Bay is adjacent to the Isle of Wight Coast Path.
