A unique day out at the Western tip of the Island. You can take the chair lift down to the beach. The beach itself is known for the different coloured sands. These can be collected in the workshops and you can create your own sand art decoration to take home. It also has a few attractions and ride for the kids to enjoy. Once on the beach there is a company that has a rib charter to view the Needles and the lighthouse.
