Seaview is a distinctive community with magnificent views across the sea and the Solent, located at the eastern end of the town of Ryde.
Seaview has a reputation for being a high-end resort, and as a result, it is quite popular with visitors. During the summer, the village becomes a popular sailing and watersports destination.
Things To Do in Seaview
While Seaview can be quiet during the winter, the village comes alive as the season progresses, and there are plenty of activities to do in the area. Seaview’s reputation as an Edwardian resort was based on its spectacular sea views and beautiful sandy beaches, which remain two of the resort’s most valuable assets.
Springvale Beach has some of the best views of the Solent, with views clear across to Portsmouth and the Spinnaker Tower, as well as the famed Solent forts. Puckpool Park, which is situated within an old Victorian Fortification Battery and contains tennis courts, mini-golf, and a children’s play area as part of its lovely grounds, is located to the rear of Springvale. Seaview Beach is a great place to launch boats and activities, and it also has a yacht club right in front of it.
The hamlet, which is just behind us, has a number of boutique-style shops, some of which are only open for a limited time. Seagrove Beach, located further down the coast, is the area’s most popular beach, with gently sloping golden beaches ideal for swimming and other sports while the tide is out. The sea wall at the back of the beach is popular for hikes to Priory Bay Beach, which boasts even more spectacular vistas and shallow sands.
