Coach holidays with Alfa Travel

Shanklin

Resort - Shanklin

Overview

Shanklin boasts a long, safe sandy beach which lies at the foot of the spectacular cliffs on which most of the town is situated. The two are connected by a cliff lift. The traditional seaside part of town blends into the picturesque thatched cottages of Shanklin Old Town at the head of the impressive Shanklin Chine. The delightful nature trail through the Chine is not to be missed and includes a surprising relic of the Second World War - a section of PLUTO, the Pipeline Under The Ocean, which was used to pump fuel under the sea to France for the Normandy landings. Although a quieter and more intimate resort than Sandown it nevertheless has its own theatre, lively pubs and entertainments.
