Brook Bay - Isle of Wight
© Carl Ayling and licensed for reuse under this Licence

This attractive, mostly sandy beach stretches for over a mile between Hanover and Sudmoor Points. It is a popular spot with surfers and fossil hunters alike with the cliffs near Hanover Point formed from a prehistoric fossilised forest.
Despite its attractions Brook Bay is rarely busy.

Brook Bay Reviews

Brook bay was spoilt buy lots of plastic and orange fishing rope washed up on the beach. I have never seen so much rubbish in a small area. I collected some, but the bin in the carpark was already overflowing.

What did we get wrong?
