Rose Cottage is a 5 minute drive to Compton Bay. Built from Island stone, it has two bedrooms and feels exceptionally homely inside.
This sheltered bay on the west of the island can offer good right-hand swells from low to mid tide when conditions are right. It's best suited to more experienced surfers as the rocky bay and strong rip can be quite challenging.
Three-bedroom Irex feels very cosy inside especially when a storm is brewing on the horizon. It's next to Pomone and Varvassi if you need more space for family and friends.
Niton to Sandown
The southern coastline of the island from Niton to Sandown is fringed with surfing spots. Rocky Niton is best for experienced surfers with its fast swells that break over boulders at high tide. If the surf is too fierce here, drive 30 minutes north to Sandown stopping at other surf spots, Ventor and Shanklin, to check the conditions.
