"Sittin' on the dock of the bay"

Ventnor Beach

Ventnor is a suntrap bay, sheltered by high cliffs on which the terraced town is built. A steep road winds down from the town, past the famous Cascade Gardens, to the seafront. You can stroll along the shingled beach or even take a cliff walk and enjoy the fantastic views of the bay. The recently constructed Ventnor Haven has become a popular venue for its fishing industry both to local businesses and to residents and visitors alike.
