One of the Island's favourite beaches and biggest expanses of open downland

Path down to the beach at Brook Bay, Compton Bay and Downs, Isle of Wight.

Closure of footpath to Brook Beach

Due to continuing cliff movement making the footpath unsafe, the Isle of Wight Council has taken the decision to temporarily close the public footpath to Brook Beach. We're working with them to find a way of constructing access to the beach but will have to wait until the cliff movement slows down. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
