Bonchurch is a small seaside village with a pebble beach that is occasionally sandy at low tide. It has fantastic sea views and is right next to the pedestrian-only promenade. A large pond with abundance of wildlife, an 11th century church, gorgeous stone structures, and sub tropical vegetation can all be found in the town centre, which is only a short walk away.
Bonchurch has a serene atmosphere, which may explain why it was popular among Victorian writers and poets. Explore the promenade that winds its way from Wheelers Bay to Ventnor, a little seaside community with miles of beach, cafés, restaurants, and a variety of small stores. The coastal road eastwards from Bonchurch gives a pleasant stroll via the quiet hamlet of Luccombe to the larger beach resort of Shanklin, making it a perfect walking day excursion.
