Shanklin

— 23 nights
Shanklin is a popular seaside resort and civil parish on the Isle of Wight, England, located on Sandown Bay. Appreciate the collections at Carisbrooke Castle and Dinosaur Isle. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Shanklin Beach and Appley Beach.

Pack the 19th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Blackgang Chine. There's much more to do: look for gifts at The Garlic Farm, enjoy the sand and surf at Ryde Beach, stroll through Steephill Cove Beach, and get interesting insight from Black Rock Charters and Fishing.

Just a short ferry ride from the mainland, the Isle of Wight has been a magnet for family vacationers for many decades. Today, the largest English island draws a young party crowd with its multitude of music festivals, rustic fishermen’s cafes, and eco-friendly campsites. The island’s main appeal remains its mild climate, allowing for a wide range of outdoor activities and watersports. Its coastline attracts families, who come here to enjoy warm beaches, dramatic cliffs, and ever-changing sand dunes. Despite being only 10 km (6 mi) from the mainland city of Portsmouth, the island is a world apart in terms of scenery, culture, and pace of life.
