The Beach Shack is currently only open for TAKEAWAY in accordance with government guidelines. We will review this situation again after 2 December. Our hours of business are Saturdays and Sundays from 10 till 3 and we are weather dependent. If in doubt, please ring ahead. Our menu is very much reduced but we have a range of hot and cold drinks and simple takeaway food. We do have to ask you to move away from the cafe once you have your order please. Thank you for your understanding. Service is from the hatch, enhanced cleaning is in place and we look forward to welcoming you when taking a breath of fresh air!
The Beach Shack café, Sandown, Isle of Wight
The Beach Shack is the first café on the Sandown to Shanklin revetment, a pedestrianised path which runs under the cliffs and along the beach between the two towns. This location is the perfect venue for families with children or for those who simply want to get away from the traffic! The added bonus of being under the cliffs, is that the Beach Shack seems to have its own little micro climate and enjoys temperatures far higher than in surrounding, unsheltered spots.
The Beach Shack has tables along the sea wall, perfect for keeping an eye on little ones while you relax at the tables, and a sheltered terrace to the side of the café, where you can sit and soak up the rays while looking out over this beautiful, sandy bay towards the downs at Ventnor. Stunning!
The Beach Shack now has a roof top terrace, The Sky Bar
, boasting stunning views, sheltered seating and shade.
In addition to the holidaymakers who return year after year, it has a strong local trade. The mood is relaxed and informal and the staff friendly and helpful. Many have been with us for a number of years!
Sandown Bay is known for its golden, sandy beaches and for safe swimming and has the best beach in the UK according to BBC Countryfile.
