Welcome to Shanklin Chine

Shanklin Chine: Marvel by day... Wonder by night

The Islands oldest tourist attraction truly is a spectacle of nature. Carved by Mother Nature’s own hands over thousands of years, the stunning tree lined gorge that is Shanklin Chine cuts its mark from Shanklin Old Village to the sandy beach and esplanade far below.

Chine Lumiere

Enjoy the splendour of the Chine by day...then wonder at its mystical beauty on summer nights during the Chine Lumière when hundreds of lights illuminate the narrow paths, streams and waterfalls within.
