This small, sand and shingle beach is tucked away on the quieter west coast of the Island.

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.
