A surprisingly busy little harbour, Bembridge is one of the Isle of Wight’s best kept secrets; its relative remoteness adding a certain charm. It is, unsurprisingly, fairly up-market and a favourite ‘hideaway’ for celebrities, attracted by the relaxed atmosphere, excellent facilities and quality of the hospitality. It also attracts keen yachtsmen from all over Europe who are lured by the excellent conditions, beautiful location and superb facilities. In the harbour itself there are plenty of pleasure craft and fishing boats available for hire and an area reserved exclusively for houseboats some of which double up as B&Bs.

The village itself has two main shopping areas; both are vibrant and attractive with an excellent choice of restaurants and pubs to choose from. It is also a favourite with aviation enthusiasts. Bembridge’s small airport attracts light aircraft pilots from all over Europe tantalised by the chance to get an Arial view of one of the most beautiful Islands in the UK. The lovely beaches are all safe with clear, shallow water backed by cliff tops with walks to satisfy any ardent rambler. The views from aloft are nothing short of magnificent.

Bembridge may not have the razzamatazz of many of the other harbour towns along the Solent but as a relaxing yet fulfilling getaway it pays in dividends

I am always suspicious about using car hire companies, as I was falsely accused of damaging a car I had hired at an airport some years ago. I had no way of proving that the damage had not been done when I dropped the car off, as I was instructed to drop the keys off at a post box. I was shocked when I got my credit card statement and discovered that £250 had been taken out for the so-called damage!
I have just hired a car from 1st Call car Hire, and I am happy to say that they put my mind a t ease and I have now regained my faith in car hire companies.
Would definitely recommend.

I have used Harbourguides for some time now and find the various guides extremely useful. However when I can not get on line obviously it cant be used. However my 11 year old Nephew kindly pointed out to me the "Print Harbour Guide" tab at the top of the page! Hey presto it worked, what would we do without kids?

Optimum Marine Surveys by John Heale
I recently used the services of Optimum Marine to carry out a survey of my vessel. Oli Byles carried out the survey and I found the service professional, informative and courteous. I would recommend this company. John Heale

Bembridge Harbour by Jason and Jill
We too have visited Bembridge Harbour many times on our visits to IOW. Each time we have received fantastic service. I think the experience that Mark had was a one off. I wouldnt be put off visiting here as I as I said, we have never had a problem.
