Located at the eastern most point of the Isle of Wight is the village of Bembridge. Synonymous with dinghy sailing they also have a very active local club scene. The beaches are popular all year round for beach combing, crabbing and for exploring the rock pools. In summer months the beaches are fantastic for swimming and sunbathing too.
Bembridge has a busy small harbour, which is always well stocked with pleasure craft and fishing boats plus a number of houseboats too.
The village centres have a good range of small, independent shops which offer an excellent range of everyday goods and as you would expect from an area close to the sea and yachting facilities, there are an excellent range of pubs and restaurants.
The last remaining windmill on the Island can be found just outside Bembridge, it dates from 1700 and is managed by the National Trust. There is also an RNLI Station at Lane End, which operates both offshore and inshore lifeboats. The station is usually open to the public for free guided tours during the summer months.
