"Sittin' on the dock of the bay"

Ventnor Beach

Ventnor is a suntrap bay, sheltered by high cliffs on which the terraced town is built. A steep road winds down from the town, past the famous Cascade Gardens, to the seafront. You can stroll along the shingled beach or even take a cliff walk and enjoy the fantastic views of the bay. The recently constructed Ventnor Haven has become a popular venue for its fishing industry both to local businesses and to residents and visitors alike.

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point and may not be accurate for this location. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.

In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use. Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.
