The beach at Freshwater Bay is set in a dip between chalky cliffs. To the west these cliffs form the famous Needles Headland and Tennyson Downs .
The sand and pebble beach is fairly popular but copes well, with plenty of space and facilities. There is also a large car park and an esplanade.
The local independent lifeboat operates from Freshwater Bay.
