Description:




Compton Bay is a bay located on the southwest section of the Isle of Wight, England. The northern edge of the bay is defined by a distinctive white chalk cliff called Freshwater Cliff, named after Freshwater Bay which is located next to them and forms a small but piercing bay into them. The eastern edge of the bay is formed from soft red and orange cretaceous rocks that are rapidly eroding.

The bay is popular with wave and kite surfers due to the reliable and consistent waves that form when the prevailing south-westerly wind is blowing onshore. The beach is gently shelving and consists mostly of sand.

There are dinosaur footprint visible in Compton Bay when the tide is low this is one of the best areas to see the Dinosaurs of the Isle of Wight. At high tide the sea covers the beach almost completely.

The Isle of Wight Coastal Path runs along the cliff edge for the entire extent of the bay.
