Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Large family friendly beach. Nice clean waters. Red rocks are awesome to explore. Lots of shops and restaurants on the other side of the road.

I swam on several occasions from this beach both in front of the town and further along out of town. It isn't the best beach in the world and in early March was windy with rough seas and moderate temperatures. But is was quiet, clean and absolutely OK.

Lovely to walk along and enjoy the view from the beach. A bit too cool for swimming during our visit, however it looked inviting.

Absolutely love visiting Cowes Beach - it is so clean, everyone is friendly and so close to the Esplanade full of cafes, restaurants, ice cream shops and boutique stores.

Last time in Cowes I missed a chance for a dip, so made sure on this visit to get the toes wet! Water temp was pleasantly good but for some reason I had the place to myself? Fairly large beach split into 2 areas with plenty of shade trees and a kids playground & a small swell. Fairly well protected and on a warm day is the place to be!
