The beach at Freshwater Bay is set in a dip between chalky cliffs. To the west these cliffs form the famous Needles Headland and Tennyson Downs.
The sand and pebble beach is fairly popular but copes well, with plenty of space and facilities. There is also a large car park and an esplanade.
The local independent lifeboat operates from Freshwater Bay.
