Shanklin town guide


Shanklin is a popular seaside resort on the Island, just south of Sandown on the south coast. The old village and the chine are it's main attractions along with the sandy beach. The esplanade along the beach is occupied by hotels and restaurants, and is one of the most tourist-oriented parts of the town. The other is the Old Village, at the top of Shanklin Chine.


The main shopping centre consists of two roads, Regent Street and High Street, which comprises the largest retail area in the south of the Isle of Wight, significant for tourists but also as a facility for residents.
