Outdoor Family Fun!


There are so many wonderful outdoor activities at The Needles, including our own private beach at Alum Bay, that we want to make sure you get the most from your visit, so here’s our quick guide to enjoying our amazing open air landmark attractions!

Our iconic location at the South Western tip of the Isle of Wight is truly breath-taking and thousands of people visit us each year to explore and discover this wonderful natural landscape, including the famous Needles Rocks & Trinity Lighthouse – the Isle of Wight’s most famous landmark.

Head to the viewing platform and take in the amazing scenery, including the iconic Needles Rocks and Trinity Lighthouse, as well as visiting the world famous Marconi Monument.

Take a ride on our famous chairlift, which transports you from the cliff-top above Alum Bay down to the beach below.  You can also enjoy a bird’s eye view of the multi-coloured sand cliffs of Alum Bay and the stunning turquoise waters that stretch as far as the eye can see.

Enjoy some time on Alum Bay beach and, for a close-up view of the dramatic Needles Rocks and Trinity Lighthouse, hop on board the pleasure boat from the jetty for a dramatic trip around the rocks and panoramic views of the Alum Bay sand cliffs.
