About Gurnard, Cowes Isle of Wight
The seafront at Gurnard near Cowes is certainly worth a visit. From here you can watch the liners and large ships leave Southampton Water, as they enter the Solent on their journey. The Solent is always awash with yachts and motor cruisers as they travel to the many locations and safe havens, which are scattered right along the northern coast of the Island.
Gurnard has a level esplanade which offers a pleasant walk. Leading to Cowes seafront, the walk has places where visitors can sit and look out to sea and watch the ships and boats go by. At the western end of the esplanade is a small restaurant which offers a good choice of
specialty filled baguettes or specials of the day also a nearby hotel offers
Gurnard is unique on The Island. There is a community of small chalets and homes, which are huddled together, each jostling for a view of the sea. These dwellings are in most cases lived in as permanent homes and each is truly individual.
The main theme of the village is sailing. Gurnard offers 2 sailing clubs and there are 2 slipways for visitors who bring their own watercraft. In front of the pub and again looking out to sea is a large green, which is sloping and ensures that however many people are sitting there, they all have a view of the beach. Kids will love crabbing and looking through the rocks or skimming stones out across the sea. For those who are more adventurous there is a coastal walk passing many of the chalets, which leads to Thorness Bay, a large sheltered bay, which is great for beach combing, cockling or just relaxing and looking out to The Mainland.
