Reeth Bay - Isle of Wight
© Mypix and licensed for reuse under this Licence

Just around the corner from the Isle of Wight’s most southerly point (St Catherine’s). The name is derived from Wraith Bay as the bodies from wrecks on the south-west coast were often washed up here.

The beach here is a pretty little cove with a slipway, stretch of sand and rocky foreshore. It backs onto the small village of Castlehaven.

A little gem

Sep 18th 2019

A lovely spot, the sandy beach is only accessible at low tide by traversing the rocky part. Good sturdy shoes required. The beach is dog friendly plus a great little open air cafe at Castlehaven (seasonal
Opening & weather permitting)
