Owner description: Steephill cove is a beautiful Hidden gem. With its ever changing beach of sand, shingle and fantastic rock pools it is no wonder that families return here year after year. Over the years Steephill has become a hot spot to eat as well. With The Boathouse Seafood Restaurant serving wonderful freshly caught Crab and Lobster and The Crab Shed serving fresh crab pasties and to add to that compliment there is Cove Coffee Shop with home made cakes, ice cream and gorgeous goodies to buy along with Hopes Happy Hut for children and The Beach Shack serving fare (all only open during the daytime hours). Steephill can only be reached by foot which adds to its safety and pure Charm... A true gem of old fashioned English seaside. A must visit for anyone on the island!

Characterful cove with good places to eat, very picturesque but lovely when you get under the sea- lots of rocks seaweed and fish.

A beautiful little oasis. We walked from Ventnor to steephill. It’s not suitable for wheelchairs or buggies, but if you don’t need/have them a fabulous walk and rewarded with an amazing cafe... just wished I hadn’t eaten so I could have tried their food.
Cafe/restaurants open Easter to end Oct/early Nov.
