Sandown is located on the Isle of Wight, which is about six miles off the coast of England. Sandown is one of many villages located on the island. Visitors come to the island each year to enjoy the beautiful weather and the gorgeous beaches. There are numerous attractions located in the local area in addition to the many watersports activities that can be enjoyed in Sandown as well as in the surrounding villages. Sandown as well as the other villages offer numerous dining and accommodation options. There are also many pubs situated in Sandown and other villages.
Whilst during the summer holidays a substantial proportion of the UK population travels abroad in order to soak up the sun and enjoy the sandy, pristine beaches of the warmer parts of Europe, it is amazing the number of people who seem totally unaware that Sandown itself has miles and miles of virgin beaches!
Sandown is so much more than your stereotypical seaside town and has a great deal of natural beauty and nature based attractions all within comfortable distance of the actual town itself one of the most popular of which is the Culver Down which is a collection of chalk hills which the public can walk around. With the steep gradients of the hills, the sea stretching out as far as the eye can comfortably see, the Culver Down site is defiantly worth a visit.
If you have children then no doubt they will find walking around some hills an unimaginably boring activity and so a trip the Dinosaur Isle Museum maybe in order. As the name probably suggests, this is a museum which has dinosaurs as the primary focus for its exhibitions and whilst museums are not usually on the list of favourite things to do for most children the various activities such as quizzes and interactive displays will no doubt keep the little ones occupied.
All of the curators and staff working in the Dinosaur isle Museum are well-experienced palaeontologists all of whom are seasoned veterans and will be more than happy to answer all of your questions!
