Compton Beach is one of the Isle of Wight’s best-kept secrets that has a two-mile stretch of contrasting golden and black sands, surrounded by the rolling sea. At low tide, you can book tours to see the infamous dinosaur footprints at Hanover Point, while fossil hunters can search the beach for souvenirs.

This next Certificated Location offers views over Rhossili Bay itself, being just a short walk away along the cliffside.

Often described as one of Wales’ best beaches, the stunning and wild Rhossili Bay is under the care of the National Trust. When the tide goes out, the remains of the Helvetia, which shipwrecked here in 1887, can be seen on the beach. Low tide also makes it possible for adventurous beachgoers to reach the tidal island of Worms Head via a rock causeway.
