Shanklin is a popular seaside resort and civil parish on the Isle of Wight, England, located on Sandown Bay. Get a sense of the local culture at Osborne House and Carisbrooke Castle.

There's much more to do: stop by The Garlic Farm, stroll through Yaverland Beach, see the interesting displays at Isle of Wight Postal Museum, and kick back and relax at Steve's Beach.

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.
