Sunset at Gurnard beach, Isle of Wight

Beautiful end to a beautiful day watching the sunset at Gurnard beach, Isle Wight!

If it’s been one of those gorgeous sunny days when you know the sky will be putting on an evening display, there is no better place on the Island than Gurnard to soak up those last few rays of sunshine. Take a picnic or a bottle of wine, wrap up warm and watch the sun go down on Gurnard beach, or grab a window seat at The Woodvale pub and relax.

If you fancy a stroll straight from our front door, then the walk to Gurnard is ideal. Roughly a 40 minute easy walk through the pretty high street of Cowes with its array of lovely cafes and shops, along Cowes Esplanade, past The Royal Yacht Squadron, then Cowes Green and beach then all along the seafront to Gurnard with its the cute beach huts, The Woodvale pub with it’s glorious views, and The Watersedge cafe.

Or it’s only a 5 minute drive, and you can park right outside the Woodvale. The food is pretty good too 🙂
