Colwell Bay is a small Isle of Wight resort which is popular with families as it has a clean, soft sandy beach. The water here is shallow and can get quite warm in the summer, which makes it ideal for safe swimming. Water sports are popular at Colwell Bay, with jet skiers and windsurfers being a common sight. There are beachside cafés which cater for all your refreshment needs, as well as gift shops and an amusement arcade. You can take a nice relaxing walk along the promenade to Totland Bay where there is a superb seafront pub / restaurant.
