Totland Bay is a sleepy seaside village. It sits within an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Beach is very pretty, sheltered, and extremely safe for bathing. The highly rated Waterfront pub and Restaurant is a 100m stroll along the promenade. The Bay is on the north west coast of the island and so enjoys views across the Solent to the mainland. The yachting, particularly around Cowes Week is very picturesque; unrivalled sunsets. There are convenience shops, post office and food take aways in the village; the larger village of Freshwater is only 2km away, which has supermarkets, library and specialist shops. Sainsbury's Superstore is 16k away in Newport, which also has a weekly market on Tuesdays. It is a walkers' paradise.
