Generally quieter than Colwell, Totland Bay is a pleasant, peaceful beach which has the same excellent quality water and sand. This beach is a good base for a turf walk and has its own picnic area. A promanade joins it with Colwell and many visitors enjoy the scenic walk between the two.
Totland has its own amusements, toilets and a cafe as well as a popular pub/resterant on the waterfront. Towards Alum Bay is a rocky area which both locals and tourists find good for prawning. Like Colwell when the tide is high there is very little beach but sunsets here are fantastic.
