On the north east coast of the Isle of Wight, at low tide Ryde beach is sandy and stretches out for miles, as far as Ryde Pier. The pier actually had to be built to enable boats to dock and to allow passengers to disembark. You'll find this is a popular beach for watersports, especially kitesufing at the eastern end. Dog restrictions apply and you'll need to read the local signage for further details.
Take a stroll the length of the beach early before the tide goes out and the beach looks stunning you could be in Spain ! Three bouys cafe at the far end has tasty food or just a drink to re fuel the kiddies.
